In An Emergency

Rutgers-Camden Student Health Services is not designed to be a first responder to emergencies outside of our clinic, whether:

  • medical (such as a heart attack or other life threatening condition) or;
  • mental health (such as behaviors that threaten harm to self or others).

In an emergency, before considering any action, please ensure your personal safety!

In case of a medical or mental health emergency, contact:

Off Campus 911
On Campus 856 – 225 – 6009 to alert campus police (or just 6009 if using a campus phone).  You can also call 911, but the quickest local response may be by contacting Campus Police.
