Blue Light Emergency Call Boxes

The Columbia University Public Safety Department maintains several emergency call boxes with blue lights on top throughout the greater Columbia University campus area that provide an immediate response to you if you need help or if you feel threatened in any way.

To Operate:

  • Push the red button for help.
  • When call is received, push and hold the red button to talk.
  • Release to listen.
