Emergency phones are located across campus to communicate with UT Police, E-911, university administration, and/or other agencies in an emergency situation. These emergency phones include blue, elevator, area of refuge, and administrative (power fail). As always, when calling 911 in an emergency, remain on the line with the dispatcher until all information and instructions are given.
