Blue-light emergency phones
Approximately 297 emergency telephones can be found throughout Wayne State's campus. More than 175 of these phones are available at outdoor locations, and there are 121 indoor emergency phones throughout campus (including inside every campus elevator). These easy-to-operate phones provide a direct line to the WSUPD's dispatch center and can be used to make free calls to on-campus telephones. To operate these phones in an emergency, simply push the red "emergency" button of the front of the phone panel. There is no need to dial a phone number, as the phone will immediately connect to the dispatch center.
