UCF Police Department
Certified law enforcement officers patrol UCF’s campuses 24/7. Call 911 in an emergency or 407-823-5555 for non-emergencies.

Emergency Blue Light Phones
Emergency phones with a blue light on top provide direct contact to a police dispatcher and can be found throughout the main campus, as well as the Downtown, Rosen and Health Sciences campuses. They’re in every level of every campus parking garage and on poles around the campuses. When you activate the red button on these phones, you’ll be connected with a UCF Police Department dispatcher and a police officer will respond as needed.
UCF Alerts are emergency text messages, emails and other communications issued by campus safety officials. Alerts notify of an emergency – such as severe weather, criminal activity or an armed threat – and provide general instructions. Depending on the nature of the emergency, follow-up alerts will contain more detailed information. More updates will be shared on Twitter @UCF and @UCFPolice.
Update your contact information on myUCF via the student or employee self-service tab. Add a parent, spouse or other secondary contact’s email address so they will also receive updates.
