Campus Safety

The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville experience should be educational, fun and safe for everyone. We are deeply committed to the health and well-being of our campus community. If you or a fellow Gamecock are experiencing a potentially harmful situation, use these campus resources to take action.

Emergency Call Boxes

Several call boxes are strategically placed around campus. The boxes can be easily identified by their bright blue lights and provide a direct line of communication with Security Dispatch at Prisma Health. Call boxes should be used to report crimes in progress, fires, medical emergencies, or threats to personal safety.

To operate, simply push the red button. You will immediately be connected with Security Dispatch at Prisma Health. Even if you are unable to communicate, the dispatcher will know your exact location. If you are being chased and cannot stop, press the call boxes as you pass and police officers will respond to the area.
