Emergency and Information Callboxes

UH Call Box imageEmergency call boxes have been placed at various locations on the University of Houston campus. These call boxes are red in color and are labeled "Emergency" in white letters. Most call boxes are free-standing towers, but some call boxes are mounted on light poles.

Operation is easy. Your call goes directly to our University Police Department dispatch center. 

While the main purpost of call boxes is to give our community a way to quickly reach out to us in the event of an emergency, thay can also be used to reach UHPD dispatch if you have a non-emergency safety or security related question or concern. Call boxes can be used to request police assistance, security escorts and any other police services.
