Emergency Contact Information
Guidelines for Emergencies
We understand that families want timely information in the event of a campus emergency. Princeton University posts news and other official information as promptly as possible on the main Princeton website. Families can also obtain information by calling the University’s emergency hotline at 609-258-7700.
On campus, the University keeps in touch with students during emergencies using the website, the Princeton Telephone and E-Mail Notification System (PTENS), email, Tiger TV and WPRB radio.

Residential College Information
Every Princeton undergraduate is affiliated with a residential college, where all freshmen and sophomores and some juniors and seniors live. Residential colleges also may be a resource for families in a situation that involves a particular student. Families can contact the appropriate residential college office (see below) or the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students at 609-258-3055. After hours, the dean-on-call may be reached by calling Public Safety at 609-258-1000.
