To report a campus emergency, call the University Police at 205-348-5454 or 911. You may also use any of the Blue Phones located throughout campus. These phones are connected directly to the University’s police communication center.
|Alabama State Troopers||205-553-5531|
|DCH Regional Medical Center||205-759-7111|
|Poison Control Center||800-222-1222|
Make sure you state the nature of the emergency, location (building and room number), name, phone number, and any other pertinent information.
Calling 911 from a cell phone reaches the neighboring public safety center whose jurisdiction includes the cell tower that received the call. Depending on the nature of the call (fire, medical, law enforcement), on-campus incidents will be transferred to the appropriate agency, including The University of Alabama Police Department (UAPD).
For convenience, some callers program UAPD’s phone number (205-348-5454) into their cell phone.
Dialing 911 from a campus phone, however, connects directly to UAPD.
