Security services on our campus are provided by Securitas, who conduct our building checks, respond to emergency calls, and provide escort services when requested. All Securitas employees are security professionals with specialized knowledge and resources, including CRP-certification, that enables them to keep students, faculty and staff safe and comfortable.

We also maintain a close relationship with the Manchester police department, working together to ensure the safety of students and staff both on and around our campus. Representatives from the department visit campus multiple times each year to talk about the simple steps students can take to ensure personal safety in an urban environment. Officers also regularly patrol the campus area.
