New BUMC Public Safety Phone Number

Public Safety services between Boston University and Boston Medical Center have been separating over the past several months. The final separation step is the call dispatch function. Effective at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3, the phone number to reach BU Medical Campus Public Safety services will be 617-358-4444. Boston Medical Center Public Safety will continue to use the existing number, 617-414-4444. Calls made from BU landlines should dial 8-4444.

Programming the new number into your cell phone is encouraged. If you inadvertently dial the BMC number from a cell phone, Boston Medical Center dispatch will immediately notify BU Public Safety of the emergency call. Routine calls will be transferred.

If you have any questions, please contact BU Chief of Police Kelly Nee or Medical Campus Public Safety Director Stephen Taranto.
