Emergency Services

If you are concerned about a student’s imminent safety, don’t delay! Call 911 or campus police at (951) 827-5222.


Campus Response Plan

Whether it's an individual in crisis, or a dangerous situation that could impact campus safety, or an urgent condition such as an earthquake, fire or flood  — UC Riverside is committed to a culture of compassion, assistance, coordination and prevention.

In the event of an emergency, this page contains important crisis response information. 

The Emergency Warning Siren will be used to warn UCR's community of emergency conditions on campus.

Students, staff and faculty are also encouraged to sign up for UCR's emergency notification system. This service enables rapid emergency communications to the entire campus community via a variety of technologies, including text messaging, email and voicemail.

Free Speech

Freedom of speech and expression are values that UC Riverside respects and encourages. This includes opinions that challenge and encourage robust debate, action, and inquiry. The safety of our community is tandem with the right to free expression and UCR will ensure that both are treated fairly.
