Ryerson Telephone Security

All Ryerson telephones are part of the safety system on campus.

If a member of the Ryerson community is experiencing an emergency on campus they can pick up the phone and dial "80". The emergency "80" phone line is the equivalent of calling "911" outside of Ryerson. The emergency "80" phone line gets community members directly in touch with security officers who will assess the situation and ensure the appropriate action is taken.
