Blue light or Public Emergency Response Telephones (PERT) provide a toll-free, direct connection to the University of Maryland Police Department. These phones are located throughout the College Park campus either inside or outside of residence halls, administrative and academic buildings. View PERT locations by going to the PERT map.
Placement of the PERT Phones is usually determined by the Department of Public Safety, in coordination with DIT's Networking and Telecommunications Services. If you have a concern about the placement or need an additional phone, please contact DPS at http://www.umdps.umd.edu and click on the Security Survey Request form.
To report any problems with the emergency phones, the list, or the map of locations, please call 301.405.1500 or send an e-mail to the NCT Service Center.
