Campus Safety

High-Level Security, All the Time

The University of Saint Francis works tirelessly to provide a safe and secure campus for all members of its community. Saint Francis’ Security Department is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (including all breaks and holidays).

They do so by:

  • Patrolling the buildings and grounds (by vehicle and on foot)
  • Monitoring safety systems
  • Providing a timely response to requests for assistance, including
    • Medical emergencies
    • Escorts across campus
    • Access to buildings
    • Reports of suspicious persons or unsafe conditions
