Campus safety is a priority. Learn how to report emergencies and incidents at the Surrey campus.

Campus Security and Emergency

In an emergency, call 911 from a personal phone or a campus phone.

  • Calling 911 from a campus phone will automatically notify Campus Security will be automatically of the call location. A phone is located in every classroom.
  • If you are unsure if it is an emergency, always err on the side of caution.
  • When you call 911 you will be asked if you need police, fire or ambulance, and then what is happening and the location.
