Take 2 minutes to enter the name and contact information of someone you trust to be your emergency contact on ACORN. Here are some things to consider:
- Add at least one person who can quickly arrive at your location, if needed. You can add more than one emergency contact.
- 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.
- Let your emergency contact(s) know that you have selected them, and that you have provided their information to the University of Toronto
