Immediate help is available in case of an emergency, there is assistance to aid students in getting around late at night and support for those experiencing difficult situations.

Help during emergencies, or when you just need information

New 360-degrmee, high-resolution cameras were installed across campus last year, and help stations — called Code Blues — can be found in nine different outdoor locations. The new stations include cameras and two-way communication capabilities to connect you directly to Security Services.
