  • Emergency phones are located throughout the campuses for a direct, automatic connection to Campus Safety.
    • Some phones have blue lights, some phones are red or orange in boxes
    • The Campus Safety dispatcher has the phone locations and will dispatch an officer to your location when the phone is activated, whether you talk or not.
    • Please stay near the phone if possible and describe your urgent need while an officer responds.
    • Use emergency phones for danger, fire, medical emergency, crimes-in-progress or suspicious activity.
  • Most residence halls have exterior campus phones. Use them to call Campus Safety as needed at 7-2000.
  • Safety Escort service: call anytime at extension 7-2000.

While Campus Safety officers respond to your needs, any other needed agencies such as police, fire, medical, etc., will be directed to the location as needed by the Campus Safety dispatcher. Campus Safety officers will clear the way and guide other emergency service providers to your exact location, and you will get the service faster if the call goes to Campus Safety first. Officers know the campus streets and buildings and are trained in first aid response. Campus Safety has a close working relationship with the Claremont Police Department and the Los Angeles County Fire Department and local ambulance providers.


LiveSafe is a smartphone app that helps members of The Claremont Colleges find resources and information as well as communicate suspicious or hazardous activities to Campus Safety.

  • Download the free app from the App Store or Google Play.
  • Once you have downloaded, select your university's name.
  • Fill out all fields under the user profile, and add emergency contacts
  • Add at least three emergency contacts. They should be close friends or family who are in a position to help
