Safety and Security
Located on the Ravenhill side of campus next to Partridge Hall, Philadelphia University's Office of Safety and Security provides a safe educational environment through a community approach to security, the promotion of personal safety, and the deterrence of crime. Department personnel enforce University regulations and coordinate contact with other law enforcement agencies to maintain the quality of safety on campus.
A security officer can always be reached by dialing extension x2999 while on campus. Individuals who are locked out of vehicles or buildings can call safety and security for assistance. A 24-hour escort service is available to anyone who feels unsafe walking on campus. Safety and security personnel encourage everyone on campus to call if assistance is needed, no matter what the circumstance.
