Emergency Contact information is needed to facilitate care and/or notification to appropriate parties in the event of an emergency. Please review your emergency contact information via your myCI account and update this information as appropriate.

Emergency contact information is used for two purposes:

  1. Emergency Contact (EC): To contact someone of your choice in case of an emergency on your behalf. This could be used if you had a medical emergency and someone needed to be notified.
  2. Missing Person Contact (optional): To contact an individual of your choice to notify in the event that the campus concludes you are missing. This individual may be the same as your emergency contact, in which case you would need to enter their information again. Otherwise, you may list a different individual other than your emergency contact.

NOTE: The Emergency Contact and the Missing Person contact information you provide is confidential and will only be used by University officials or law enforcement officers to provide notifications in the event of a personal or campus emergency, or in the event you are believed to be missing.

Student Housing at CI requires that the EC information be provided, however listing of a Missing Person Contact is optional. If you do not indicate a person to contact in the event you are presumed missing, the campus will notify your Emergency Contact (EC). Below are directions on how to add/update your contact information via myCI.
