Security Control Centre (SCC)

Operated by York University Security Services, the Security Control Centre (SCC) is staffed 24 hours a day throughout the year to provide a means of rapid communication between members of the York community and emergency and other security services available on and off campus. The SCC receives telephone calls from the community, monitors CCTV security cameras and dispatches mobile and foot patrol security officers. The SCC's specially-trained desk officers are equipped to obtain the required help in the shortest possible time, arranging, where necessary, to meet emergency vehicles (police, fire, ambulance) at the main entrance to campus, and to escort them directly to the scene of the emergency. To enable SCC to dispatch assistance in an effective and timely manner, it is important that they be informed in the first instance of all emergency situations on either campus. To obtain help in an emergency arising at York or Glendon, call 33333 or 416-736-5333, or simply pick up the receiver of any Emergency Blue Light Telephone or elevator emergency telephone. The latter connect directly to SCC. No money is required when calling Security at 416-736-5333 from any Campus pay phone.

On occasion, a personal emergency may require a student to be contacted quickly. Students are urged to provide those who may need to reach them in an emergency with up-to-date information about their class timetable, specifying day, times and locations.
