Startel, the campus-wide public security system, is maintained and operated by Technology Solutions. The system is best identified by the 8-foot, blue-light bollards or posts located throughout the public walkways, restrooms, common areas, and elevators on the East and West campuses. Startel units offer direct access to the UIC Police Department; press the red call button to call for assistance. There are over 1,475 Startel units throughout campus. These units self-test daily to ensure reliability in an emergency.
Panic buttons are the newest addition to the Startel System. Panic buttons are one-way communication devices mounted in higher risk environments, usually under desks. These are called Silent Startels. With a single press of the button, the call will go directly to the UIC Police without a sound or indication. The UIC Police will be able to hear audio in the event the button is pressed, which gives officers a better understanding of circumstances before arrival.
