Emergency Phone System

Emergency Phone System

Emergency call boxes have been strategically positioned around the campus and at residence areas, the Atlantic Center, and University Place. Every residential unit at University Place phase one has an emergency panic button located in each bedroom. The call boxes connect to a Coastal Carolina University dispatcher.

The call boxes on campus work like walkie-talkies, push the button to talk, then release the button to allow the dispatcher to talk to you.

These boxes can be used to report any of the following:

  • Any emergency
  • Medical problems
  • Fires

In addition, to enhance telephone capabilities in the event of an emergency, safety telephones have been installed in select academic locations on campus. The telephones have pre-prgrammed buttons for quick and easy access to CCU Campus Emergency (2911) and Horry County Disptach (911). Learn more »
