Responding to Student Emergencies and Crisis

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to fostering an educational climate that is conducive to the academic success and personal development of our students.  The University and Student Affairs recognizes a crisis or emergency incident may occur that could significantly impact the student and / or the larger UNC-CH community.  For incidents such as these, the Office of the Dean of Students is prepared to coordinate or provide an effective and timely response 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

When an emergency occurs, the Office of the Dean of Students  will typically be notified. If a critical campus-wide situation occurs, an emergency notification distributed and additional details may be found on the Alert Carolina website.

For a crisis requiring an emergency response, please contact 911 or the Department of Public Safety at (919) 962-8100.

Public Safety is a fully accredited law enforcement agency that provides 24 hour  services, including emergency response. EMS will also be dispatched if needed.

Individuals who believe they have experienced or witnessed crimes, University policy violations, or other questionable incidents are encouraged to report these incidents to appropriate University resources. If you have questions about how or whether to report, a representative of the Office of the Dean of Students is available to meet with you. Everyone is encouraged to contact the University of North Carolina Department of Public Safety at 919-962-8100.
