Emergency number

Emergency situations

In the event of an emergency, contact the University of Amsterdam (UvA) Central Control Room on the central emergency number:

T: +31 (0)20 525 2222

This number can be reached day and night, seven days a week. Emergencies that should be reported to the Central Control Room include major leaks with a danger of short circuits, power failures, fire and if you think you smell gas.


Alternatively, you can call your building's porter, who will relay the information directly to the Central Control Room and alert the Company Emergency Response Team (CERT). To contact the porter of a specific building, consult the reception desk details in the overview of UvA locations.
