Campus Safety & Emergency

Campus Safety & Emergency


Sometimes, a student’s college experience is interrupted by an emergency or a crisis situation. To manage such incidents, we have a number of mechanisms in place:

  • The University of Pittsburgh Police can be reached at (412) 624-2121. Please contact them with any emergencies or inquiries.
  • Students can take an active role in protecting their safety by following the tips outlined here.
  • Also, students are encouraged to sign up for the Emergency Notification System (ENS) upon their arrival on campus.
  • If you find yourself experiencing a personal emergency or crisis, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (412)648-1006.
  • If you find yourself in an unsafe relationship or have experienced sexual harassment and/or assault, contact the Office of Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Education (SHARE)
