Emergency Numbers

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.

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 your call’s cell tower.  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, program UAPD’s phone number (205-348-5454) into your phone.

Dialing 911 from a campus phone, however, connects directly to UAPD.
