Ensure your safety and the safety of others
If you are on campus:
Contact Campus Services 7999
Contact emergency services:
Overdose or definite threat of self-harm
Request Ambulance 999 or 112
Student violent, armed, aggressive, or threatening:

If assisting a fellow student:
Once help is on its way, if it safe to do so, reassure your fellow student and wait with them until help arrives.
After the incident:
- Talk about it with friends or family while respecting the confidentiality of the affected student
- Consider talking to the UCD Student Counselling Service
- Talk to your Programme Office about what has happened – you might need to take a few days away from your studies, or arrange an extension, for example.
