SMU urges anyone who has experienced sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking to alert police as soon as possible. SMU campus authorities can notify law enforcement authorities, at the victim’s request.
To report to police and pursue criminal charges
On campus, SMU Police can be reached at 911 from a campus phone; at 214-768-3333 from a cell phone; or by utilizing a blue-light phone on campus at any time.
In the case of an off-campus incident, students should call 911 to reach police in that jurisdiction or call 214-768-3333 to reach SMU Police, who can connect callers with police in the appropriate jurisdiction.
Those who wish to anonymously provide information regarding suspicious or criminal activity to SMU Police may call 214-768-2TIP (2847) or submit information online at smu.edu/2TIP. The form may be submitted anonymously or with a name and contact information.
