Emergency Medical Assistance

Emergency medical assistance is initiated with a call to University Police at (203) 392-5375 or 911. A police dispatcher will obtain a brief description of the emergency and send an officer to the scene. In case of a life-threatening situation (e.g., apparent heart attack, breathing difficulty, state of unconsciousness) the dispatcher will call simultaneously for an ambulance and arrange for an escort for the ambulance to the exact campus location. In all cases, Health Services will be notified of the action taken. 

Lactation Room

To help students balance the demands between their studies and parenthood, the University has two lactation rooms.  One lactation room is located in the Women's Lounge in Connecticut Hall on the first floor, and the second lactation room is located on the first floor of the Hilton C. Buley Library, Room 117.  Students who need a quiet, welcoming space in which to pump breast milk may use either lactation room with advance notice.  For more information or to reserve a lactation room, please visit the Lactation Room website.
