Emergency Phones and Safe Walk
William Woods has installed six emergency phones, also referred to as “blue phones”, in strategic locations across campus.
Each phone has an attention-getting blue strobe mounted atop the unit that is continually lit, and the strobe is activated when the emergency button is pressed.
The phones contain two buttons:
- A red emergency button that calls 911 — Used for emergencies ONLY
- A black button, which calls the WWU switchboard to summon assistance for non-emergency situations such as lock-outs and dead batteries
Campus Security is available to escort students across campus after hours. For Campus Security, dial 4357 (HELP) from a university phone or 592.4357 from a cell phone.
When you need the Police, Fire or an Emergency Response, dial 9-911 from any university phone, or 911 from a cell or off-campus phone.
