Emergency Phones

Emergency telephones are available to the University community throughout Penn's campus. These phone sets are sometimes referred to as "blue light phones," named after the blue lights mounted above them that draw attention to emergency phone locations. Penn's Division of Public Safety monitors and maintains these telephone sets. They are a direct connection to the University Police Department.

Two types of blue light phones are available: a cradle phone and a push button phone. Push button blue light phones can also serve as building entrance devices. Users can either call a phone extension inside a building or press the emergency button to immediately be connected with Penn's police. If you are interested in having an emergency phone installed in your area, please contact the Division of Public Safety Leaving Voice website at 8-7297 (their non-emergency number).
