Blue Light Services

Blue Light and Emergency Phones   

There are currently over 950 Blue Light and emergency phones on the Cornell campus. For direct connection to Cornell Police, lift the receiver or press the button.

Lost? Having car problems? Want to report a suspicious incident or a medical emergency? Need any other kind of assistance or information immediately? That is what these phones are for. As soon as the connection is activated, the location of the phone is displayed on the Cornell Police switchboard. If a caller does not or cannot speak, an officer is immediately dispatched to the phone site. Note: If calling to report an emergency on a phone at the entrance to a residence hall, push the “on” button and then press 911.
