Emergency Call Boxes

Several hundred call boxes are strategically placed around campus. The boxes can be easily identified by their bright blue lights and provide a direct line of communication with the USC Police. Call boxes should be used to report crimes in progress, fires, medical emergencies, or threats to personal safety.

To operate, simply push the red button. You will immediately be connected with the USC Police dispatcher. Even if you are unable to communicate, the dispatcher will know your exact location. If you are being chased and cannot stop, press the call boxes as you pass and police officers will respond to the area.

The campus is divided into 4 quadrants with the center being the intersection of Greene and Sumter Streets. By clicking over a quadrant below you will be provided with a larger view of that portion of the campus.
