Reminder: How to Contact UIC Police in an Emergency
- A new phone number, 5-5555, can be used to summon Police or Fire for any on-campus emergency. “Five Fives for Help” is intended to be easier to remember and quicker to dial from a campus phone. Phone stickers with the new emergency number are being distributed to campus units and are available from the UIC Police.
- Set up the complete number, 1-312-355-5555, on speed-dial on your cell phone.
- More than 1,000 Startel emergency phones are on campus. A red button activates an alarm and flashing light and immediately connects you to UIC Police. Spot the phone locations as you make your way around campus.
