Emergency Information

Emergency Contacts

Call 911 for any situation that requires IMMEDIATE police, fire, or medical response.

Witnesses and victims of a campus crime or emergency, as well as anyone who is suspicious of people or situations on campus, are urged to contact campus security at 4911 from a campus phone or 540-432-4911 from an off-campus phone.

In the residence halls, a residence director is on call 24 hours a day to respond to emergencies or incidents which occur on campus. The director can be reached at 540-476-4578.

Each residence hall room is equipped with a campus telephone line (residents provide their own telephones), and a phone is also located at the main entrance of each residence hall. Incidents can also be reported in person at the physical plant office or the student life office in University Commons. (See map.)

Crisis Communication

EMU’s Crisis Management Preparedness Team has joined colleges across the country in assessing crisis communication protocol. In the event that we need to get a message to all of our student body, we will immediately convene our crisis management team to assess the situation, prepare communications for parents and lead the campus during the crisis.
