The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now reachable on the campus phone system through the 9-988 dialing code. In 2020, Congress designated a new dialing code, 988, to be operated through this existing hotline. All phones on campus now have this dialing code enabled as well.
Please note that all campus phones require users to press “9” before dialing any off-campus phone numbers. Therefore, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached from any campus phone by dialing “9-988.”
If you have any questions, please contact Communication Services Support at 805-893-8700.
