The McGill University emergency phone system

Need to call for assistance but don't have access to an office phone or have a cellular on your person?

If you are outdoors, there is a network of 20 emergency phones covering the McGill downtown campus. These phones are located outside buildings, along walkways and in structures at various locations where they are most visible. The yellow box-type phones are equipped with a blue light that is lit at night for easy reference. To use an emergency phone, simply press the red button and wait until you are connected to Security Services. A mobile patrol will be dispatched to your location to provide assistance if required.

There are emergency phones located just inside the main entrance of almost all major McGill buildings. Furthermore, every elevator on campus has an emergency phone that is connected directly to Security Services. Lastly, all public pay phones on campus can be used to reach us at no charge by dialling 398-3000.

For more information, visit our website at Security Services works with you for a safe community.
