By registering your mobile phone with Mason Alert, downloading the emergency mobile app, and becoming familiar with Mason’s emergency response procedures, you will be as ready as you can be for an emergency on campus. That said, remember that we’re always here to help. If in doubt, we strongly encourage you to call University Police at 703-993-2810 or 911 from an on campus phone for emergency situations.
