What is an emergency?

An emergency is when someone's health, safety or property is threatened and that person needs the immediate assistance of Campus Public Safety, the Aurora Police Department, the fire department or ambulance services to deal with that threat.

  • Immediate police assistance is needed when reporting a crime in progress or a life-threatening or violent situation.
  • Immediate fire assistance is needed when reporting a fire on campus or any other location.
  • Immediate ambulance assistance is needed when immediate medical attention or transport is needed for victims of serious accidents or illness.

What is NOT an emergency?

It is not an emergency when the situation is not dangerous and immediate action is not necessary. For these incidences, use the non-emergency numbers.

What if your complaint or concern is not an emergency?

If your complaint or concern is not an emergency, dial the non-emergency number. Use that number for calls such as parking complaints, non-emergency lockouts or concerns pertaining to Campus Public Safety, students, faculty, staff and university property. If it is not a Campus Public Safety issue, you will be directed to contact the appropriate department.
