Emergency Contact Information
Guidelines for Emergencies
In the event of a campus emergency, news and other official information is posted on the Princeton University website as promptly as possible. Understandably, parents want information about their daughter or son quickly; utilizing the website, including its subscription features through RSS feeds, is the easiest method for obtaining the most accurate information available. Many of Princeton's emergency procedures are featured on the emergency preparedness website. Families can also obtain information about campus emergencies by calling the University’s emergency hotline at 609-258-7700.

Emergencies Involving a Particular Student
Every Princeton undergraduate is affiliated with a residential college, which has professionals who also may be able to assist parents. In an emergency that involves a particular student, parents can contact the appropriate residential college office 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.
