Reporting an Emergency or Crime
We strongly recommend that you promptly report emergencies and/or criminal activity to the campus police by calling (on a campus phone) 5555 or 5433. If you are using an off-campus line, call 508-831-5555 or 508-831-5433. For the Worcester Police, dial 911.
There are also 108 "blue-light" emergency phones located throughout the campus and we encourage all community members to familiarize themselves with their locations, which can be found online. By simply pressing the red emergency button, you will be dialing the campus police dispatcher. A WPI police officer will be dispatched immediately to investigate the emergency or crime, and to take the appropriate action.
WPI provides notifications about serious campus or local crime that poses a threat to its community by posting safety advisories and/or alerts online. In the event of a power outage, advisories/alerts will be posted in public areas on campus. View current safety notifications.
