If I am on campus and I call 911, who responds?

If you call 911 on campus, either the Cambridge Police or the Boston Police will receive the call depending on your location. The HUPD has a good working relationship with both departments, and they generally inform the Department of the 911 call. HUPD officers either alone, or in a join response with another agency, will respond to your location. When assistance is requested, regardless of which agency you call, law enforcement personnel will respond to assist.

To reach the HUPD directly in an emergency, please call 617-495-1212.
