Reporting Locations and Resources

There are many ways to seek help and assistance or to file a report with the University.

In case of emergency, University Safety and Security for both the Portland and Biddeford campuses may be reached by dialing 366 from any campus phone and by dialing (207) 283-0176 from any non-campus phone. In all emergencies, 911 can be dialed from any on-campus phone to reach local law enforcement or emergency medical services. University Safety and Security can also assist a student in reaching local emergency services.

Anyone who reports an incident of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, harassment or discrimination will be assisted in understanding their reporting options and will not be forced to make any type of report with which they are uncomfortable.
