How to Report a Crime
To report a crime contact Security at 615-476-3061 (non-emergencies). Dial 9-1-1- for emergencies only, or use the Code Blue telephones located in the Residential Halls, Parking Lots or by some buildings.
Any suspicious activity or person seen in the parking lots or loitering around vehicles, inside buildings or around the Residential Halls should be reported to Security.
In addition, you may report a crime to the following areas:
Campus Watch Tip Line
Campus Watch is an anonymous tip line for students, faculty, and staff.

As always, in cases of immediate emergencies, call 911.
