Life Threatening Emergencies on Campus

In case of a life-threatening emergency or services, call 911.

Emergencies on campus should be immediately reported to the Department of Public Safety by dialing 222 from any campus phone, or (310) 338-2894 from an off-campus line.

LMU Emergency Medical Technicians

When the Student Health Services office is closed, the Department of Public Safety will respond and dispatch the LMU Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). The EMTs will provide emergency first aid and stabilization. If the victim needs a higher level of care, the Public Safety Officer will call for 911 assistance. 

Students are responsible for medical costs incurred during an off campus urgent care or a hospital visit. It is advisable to always carry your health insurance ID card.
