Campus safety and security is a priority at Arcadia University. In an effort to maintain a safe environment for the University community, we employ a trained public safety staff. Public Safety Officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day and operate an around-the-clock communications center. An escort service is available for on-campus facilities. Student desk receptionists monitor the residence hall lobby entrances during the evening hours.
Student Health Services endeavors to support the student's physical and emotional self while in the pursuit of their education. We nurture students as they strive for independence by teaching self-care concepts and encouraging safe and thoughtful practices as health care consumers.
Psychological emergencies (risk of harm to self or others) are seen immediately during regular counseling hours. If a psychological emergency occurs outside of regular counseling hours, please contact Public Safety (x2999) and Residence Life directly. Additional emergency response may be necessary, including contact with the Director of Residence Life, the Assistant Dean, or the Dean of Students.
