Text on a maroon background stating, "If you need emergency assistance, call 911 immediately." A gold M is undereath.

In the event of an accident, injury, health crisis, or other types of emergencies, call 911 immediately and then contact the Community Advisor on Duty or your community's Information Desk for additional support.

Seconds count in an emergency, so don't wait or assume someone else will call.

The University strives to raise awareness and improve conditions for students experiencing mental health challenges. Many students need help with concerns related to stress, anger, depression, anxiety, and other issues. You're not alone, and there are campus resources for you if you need them, including your dedicated building team.
