Security department 24/7 available

This week is national Safety Week. Utrecht University will also be taking part. Today we focus on the Security department. 

Did you know that the university has a security department? And that that department is available 24/7, 365 days per year. Take a look what the department does to keep the university safe. You also have a role in that. Together we make sure that our work and study environment stays safe.

What should you do in case of an emergency?

Is there an emergency such as a fire, an accident or theft? Do you need help urgently? Then call the Control Room of Utrecht University via +31 (0) 30-253 44 44. This number is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Why should you call 030-253 4444 and not 112?

You should call the Control Room in case of an emergency because:

  • the employees know the UU buildings far better than the emergency services do.
  • the Control Room can call the in-house emergency officers and first-aid helpers so that someone can help at the scene quickly.
  • the Control Room determines whether it is necessary to call the police, fire brigade or an ambulance.

Watch a video clip for more information about what to do in case of an emergency. 

What to do when the matter is less urgent?

For less urgent matters, for example if you have seen something suspicious, call 030-253 1300.
