Anyone on the UTD campus may activate the University Emergency Medical Response (UEMR) unit, who serves the UT Dallas community by providing faster and more direct emergency medical care for everyone on campus.  Call 972-883-2222 or dial 2222 from any campus phone.

Undergraduate Students may seek medical attention at the Student Health Center (SSB 4.700), call ext. 2747.

Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students should consult with Risk Management to identify where they may seek medical attention.

Hospitals and ER Clinics should only be visited for serious injuries.

The facility can contact Annette Rogers (972-883-2369). You must submit a copy of the visit documentation/discharge paperwork when reporting the incident to Risk Management.
