Emergency Contact Information

We'd like to ask you to take 1-2 minutes to login to ACORN and enter the name and contact information of somone you trust to be your emergency contact

Tips for Choosing Your Emergency Contact(s)

  • You can select more than one!
  • Add at least one person can easily and quickly arrive at your location, if needed. 
  • If you're unsure of who to add, think of someone that you trust, is reliable, and if possible, would be able to connect with your networks (other family members, friends), if needed.

It is also a good idea to let your contact(s) know that you have provided their information to the University of Toronto!
