Assistance Call Boxes


The UTA Police Department maintains a network of approximately 227 emergency phones in many of the campus buildings and over 82 outdoor assistance call boxes around campus. These assistance call boxes have a blue light on top and are clearly marked "Assistance." Pushing the call button activates a direct connection with the UTA PD that automatically pinpoints the caller's location.

Pushing a call button when there is NO EMERGENCY is the same as making a false report to law enforcement - a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 DAYS IN JAIL AND/OR A FINE OF $2000.
