Some Blue Light Phones Out on Dutch Quad Until Mid or Late July

Dutch Quadrangle

There are 467 Blue Light Phones, located all around campus, which give students immediate phone access to police, fire, and emergency medical services. Due to the Dutch Quad Tunnel Repair Project, Blue Light Phone service in Stuyvesant Tower and in one of two Blue Light Phones along the Dutch Quad sidewalk will be out through mid to late July. The University recommends two alternatives while these Blue Light Phones are out: downloading the UAlbany App, whose Get Help icon links to emergency services, and adding UPD’s main phone number, 518-442-3130, to your cell phone.
