In the event of an emergency
Based on your particular circumstance, we recommend deciding who can provide you with the most immediate and appropriate support.
Call the local equivalent of 911. 911 is not the universal emergency number, so you should know the number for police, fire, and ambulance; or save it on your cell phone.
- If you are a victim of sexual misconduct, please call International SOS or your Program/University first, as laws pertaining to sexual assault differ widely across countries.
- Call your local program/university contact. Find out who your emergency contact is before you need them, as emergencies often happen after office hours or on weekends. Save their number into your cell phone.
- Call International SOS for assistance at +1.215.942.8478. You can also download their app on your smart phone. DU's membership number is 11BSGC000067.
- Call DU Campus Safety for 24-hour assistance at +1.303.871.3000. The officer on duty can direct your call to DU's resources: the Office of International Education, the Health & Counseling Center, etc.
