Campus Life: Safety & Support

Campus Safety & Support


First Responders and Peer Health Educators offer support on campus

Public Safety


The Department of Public Safety operates 24/7/365, providing a safe and secure environment for everyone on campus. The office/dispatch center is located near Mattapany Road, with close proximity to the residential areas of campus.

Our Public Safety officers patrol the campus on foot, bicycles, and in vehicles. They respond to calls for service, residence hall access, investigate reported incidents and policy violations and work closely with the county police and rescue squads.

In addition to campus patrols, our public safety officers provide security support at large campus events and oversee security (blue light) phones located throughout the campus.

Our Campus Safety Reports are compiled in accordance with the procedures set forth by law.
