Blue Light Phone Program

The University maintains a number of courtesy phones throughout the campus. These phones are programmed to call University  Security and the switchboard.

The Security department maintains a number of exterior "blue light" phones. These phones have a direct dial connection to the Campus Security dispatcher and can be used to request an officer response or report an incident. The phones are easily recognizable. They are mounted on an eight foot stanchion which is painted a light color. A highly visible blue light at the top of the stanchion is illuminated after dark. The phones are easy to use. Simply open the door to the phone box and push the red button. There is no handset. You will be connected directly to the Security dispatcher. The location of the phone is automatically displayed to the dispatcher. Blue light phones are located in the following areas:

  • Boone and Cincinnati lot
  • Music Annex Lot
