Emergency blue light phones
There are over 70 emergency blue light phones on campus, located in the parking garages, along the major walkways of campus, and in various residence halls. You can directly contact 911 and the Campus Safety and Security communications center at no charge using these.
BroncoAlert is a phone and text-based system allowing the university to proactively notify students, faculty and staff when an emergency is taking place on or near campus. To receive BroncoAlert updates, opt-in here.
If you witness an emergency situation, contact either Campus Security or Boise Police immediately.
In situations requiring broad notification of residents, staff members will go door to door, place messages on your Bronco Card, or post general area announcements on bulletin boards or doors. In all cases, it is critical that you follow the instructions given. You’re also highly encouraged to opt-in to BroncoAlert, the university’s electronic notification system for timely notices of emergency information.
