Keeping Our Campus Safe
Our Community Comes First
As a community-oriented service, our Safety and Security team members are here to make sure you feel safe, supported, and secure while you live and learn at St. Lawrence. We do that by maintaining an active presence on campus, working with community partners, and empowering students to play an active role in supporting their peers.

We maintain an active presence on campus, provide regular presentations for student groups, clubs, and organizations, and can be reached easily in case of an emergency.
We take pride in the valuable services we provide our campus community.
In addition to connecting you with University services after hours, we also provide a range of programs that aim to prevent crime and enhance your safety, including bicycle patrols, safe walks, emergency blue phones and yellow call boxes, campus alerts, and transportation into the local community.
