To report any campus emergency dial 9-1-1 or 8-9-1-1 from any campus telephone. Most CSU phones have been upgraded with a dedicated "911" button near the upper right corner of the phone. This button provides direct contact with a CSU Police Dispatcher.
Cell phone users should dial 9-1-1 and tell the operator to connect them with CSU Police.
For non-emergencies, please call (216) 687-2020.
To report potentially violent activity, (216) 5BE-SAFE (523-7233).
Viking Safety Escorts
Faculty, staff, and students who feel unsure about their safety while walking on campus may request a Viking Safety Escort. The Viking Safety Escort Service is not a taxi service but a safety option for those that have a genuine concern for their personal safety.
Viking Safety Escorts are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year by Security Officers and Student Campus Safety Officers (CSO's) for on campus and nearby off campus student housing locations only.
You may request a Viking Safety Escort through our Rave Guardian safety app or by contacting CSUPD at (216) 687-2020.
