Blue Emergency Phones

There are over 100 blue light phones located throughout the Texas A&M University campus. Each of these phones is a distinguished pole with the blue light on top and "Emergency" written on the front and sides. Call panels may vary slightly.

In an emergency, follow the instructions on the phone. The University Police dispatcher will immediately know your exact location. Talk directly into the speaker in the center of the phone.

Corps Escort

The Corps of Cadets Guard Room Escort Program provides a free Corps escort service to Texas A&M students, faculty and staff. When Guard Room operations are conducted, members of the campus community can request a Corps escort on weekdays from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. and 24 hours a day on weekends.

The Guard Room is closed on holidays and during final exams. During football season, the Guard Room is closed two hours before a home game and for one hour afterward.

To request a Corps escort, call the Guard Room at 979-845-6789. This number can also be found on the back of your student ID. A member of the Corps of Cadets will meet the person requesting the escort and walk with them to on-campus locations on main campus and up to West Campus Garage.

International Students

For those who may be from another country and attending Texas A&M, it is important to be aware of and understand the importance of personal safety and what resources are available. This includes you, your family, where you live and where you frequent.

The best way to be safe is to develop good personal safety practices that include safeguarding your residence, dealing with people in public or on the phone, or staying safe when at home, on the road or on campus.

Study Abroad

When in another country, it is hard to plan for every possible situation, so students studying abroad must rely upon experience and judgment when an unexpected situation arises.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure that you have sufficient health and accident insurance for the entire period you are out of the U.S.
  • Use your common sense. Be cautious and keep your wits about you, just as you would in any large or unfamiliar city.
  • Before you travel, you should check with your doctor about inoculations that you may need for where you are going. If you take prescription medication, have an ample supply for your entire stay and make sure that all medication (including over-the-counter drugs) is clearly labeled and in its original container.
