Something is on fire
Improper use of 911 includes:
Non-emergency medical issues such as aches and pains, flu symptoms, minor cuts, etc.
Getting information such as weather, traffic, directions or telephone numbers
Calling to ask why emergency personnel are at a certain location
Reporting burst pipes or loss of power
Calling as a joke
For all non-serious emergencies, please call the UCAELI office or the UCAELI emergency number. If you need to call 911 please get in touch with a UCAELI staff member at some point to let us know what is happening.
UCAELI follows the same guidelines as UConn. When UConn classes are cancelled due to weather, so are UCAELI classes. All students will be notified of the closing by the University and a UCAELI staff member. Make sure to check your UConn email for official class cancellation.
Sometimes students have emergencies at home and they may need to return home. Make sure that your family knows multiple ways to get in touch with you while you are here. Give your family the UCAELI contact information just in case they cannot get in contact with you.
Make sure that if you need to leave the country for any reason, you talk to ISSS before leaving so that you can return to the country at a later date. Make sure you notify UCAELI staff of any plans you have to return home.
