Student safety is extremely important at Xavier. As the University expands, the needs and challenges of providing protection grow with it. Although we have experienced a very nominal rate of on-campus crime, we continue to make improvements. We've enhanced our security to both the classroom and living spaces. We continue to review the number and location of emergency phones to provide optimal coverage.
Campus Police engage the campus through their Community Oriented Policing (COP) program. The COP program has been recognized by the Xavier Student Government Association as a valuable tool to enhance student safety. Xavier Police offer escort services, auto assistance and more than 50 crime prevention programs each year—all for your safety.
We cannot do this alone. Campus Safety requires a community effort. The cooperation and involvement of students in any campus safety program is absolutely necessary. Everyone must assume responsibility for their own safety and the security of their property by following simple, common sense precautions.
Sign Up for XU ALERT ME
The University provides a voice and text message system, XU ALERT ME. This is a communication system that contacts members of the campus community through voice and text messages in the event of an urgent situation. Students may sign up for the service through the MyXU campus portal.
