  • Use red emergency phone in hallway near Multipurpose Room to call Campus Safety. They will be able to hear you but you will not be able to hear them reply back.

Sullivan Aquatic Center

  • Notify the Lifeguard on the stand or in the office.

Bellomy Field

  • Have someone notify the Malley Center Front Desk Staff.
  • Use one of the three emergency phones ASAP to notify Campus Safety- one is located next to the main gate for the field, one is on the south side of the field along the El Camino Real, and one is located to the east of the softball entrance.

The Campus Recreation staff has the final authority in all decisions related to participant, spectator, and staff safety, potential facility damage, or non-compliance with facility guidelines and policies or staff requests.
