24/7 Support Resources

Police, Fire, or Medical Emergency

If you have a police, fire, or medical emergency, call TUPD. Appropriate emergency crews will be dispatched immediately. Available 24/7.

Mental Health

If you or a friend are experiencing a mental health emergency such as thoughts of suicide, an impulse to hurt yourself, severe mental confusion or disorientation, extreme panic, or inability to care for yourself, get in touch with a professional counselor right away. There is a counselor available 24/7 who can talk with you to assess the situation and offer crisis intervention.

Physical Health

If you have a medical emergency that requires immediate evaluation, call TUPD so that EMTs can be sent to your location immediately. If you are feeling ill and want to consult with a medical provider for a non-emergency, the Health Service offers 24/7 consultations with a nurse.

Dean on Call

The Student Affairs Dean on Call is available for crisis support 24/7. You can contact the Dean on Call if you or another student experiences a sudden hospitalization, a destabilizing personal situation, or a major adverse life event that requires assistance immediately. Students, faculty, and staff can also contact the Dean on Call if they are worried about a student and need consultation or support. The Dean on Call is a student affairs crisis intervention resource supporting student wellbeing, not an academic advising dean or designed to receive academic concerns or requests for academic flexibility. If you need academic flexibility or have questions about academic policy, email your advising dean and they will respond during business hours.
