Facilities Management will continue to send emails and post notices about elevator outages around campus to their website.
Campus Security is also trained to respond to any stranded persons or elevator emergencies by calling x3200 or x4300. In the event of an entrapment, call Campus Security on the emergency phone located inside the elevator.
