The University of Illinois Police Department is advising anyone who needs emergency services to dial 911 from a cellphone while some campus emergency phones are unavailable because of a cut cable line.

AT&T and Technology Services staff are working on the issue, and it is estimated that the emergency phones will be back in service by midnight.

Most of the affected emergency phones are in the southeastern portion of campus, but some other affected phones may be scattered throughout campus.

Blue emergency phones are located in all campus buildings, parking garages, in many bus shelters, and in lighted emergency kiosks along streets and walkways. The phones are connected directly to the University of Illinois Police Department and are monitored 24/7, including all holidays. To view a map of all campus emergency phones, please visit

We apologize for any inconvenience and are working to resolve the issue quickly.
