  • In case of a problem, concern, or emergency, you can contact your Gryphon On-Duty for guidance and support.  The Gryphon On-Duty can provide assistance if you have concern about a friend, are locked out, aren't feeling well, have a facilities emergency in your room, etc.  The Gryphon On-Duty can also assist you in finding appropriate resources if you aren't sure how to best address a concern.

  • There is an Assistant Director who is on-duty at all times as well, and a Residence Life staff member (either the Gryphon or Assistant Director On-Duty) can be reached by calling your Gryphon duty phone number.
