Emergency Numbers

  • An Emergency is a situation that requires immediate police, fire, or medical response to preserve life or property. The Cornell Police dispatcher should make the decision on who to send; first responders sent by Cornell police should be on-site within about 2 minutes. Longer response times are likely if a different (non-Cornell) dispatcher is called.

  • From any 253-, 254-, and 255- prefix campus phone, call 911; this will bring you to the Cornell Police dispatcher.

  • From a cell phone or pay phone, call (607) 255-1111. This will connect you to the Cornell Police dispatcher. (Calling 911 from a cell phone will go to the NY State Police dispatcher; 911 from a non-Cornell landline phone will go to the Tompkins County dispatcher.) DO NOT dial the Ithaca Police Department or the Ithaca Fire Department.


  • Direct lines to Cornell Police are available in Wilson Lab and the Physical Sciences Building. They are chest-high, pushbutton-activated, and mounted along exit routes, typically near exits, doorways, or stairwells. Using one of these may be a more convenient way of dialing 911, depending on your location.
