Emergency Services

If you or someone you know is in immediate distress or thinking about hurting themselves, call or text 988 or go to the nearest emergency room.

In the event of an on campus emergency, you should contact the University Police Department at (214) 333-5555 for assistance. The University Police Department will provide immediate assistance and notify appropriate staff who can assist with the emergency. Students may also need to contact family members during emergencies since students and their families must ultimately take responsibility for the student's well-being.
