Campus Safety

At Xavier, as in all communities, ensuring personal safety and security is our priority for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. We also believe that each person has a responsibility to be on the alert for potential crimes and to follow common sense precautions to protect themselves and others, as well as their personal property.

Campus Police

The Office of Campus Police is located at Flynn Hall, 1648 Herald Avenue. The staff of professional officers is available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. To reach an officer in an emergency, dial extension 1000 from any on-campus phone, or use any blue on-campus emergency phone. From off-campus, call 513-745-1000. For non-emergencies, dial extension 2000 from any on-campus phone or call 513-745-2000.

Campus Buildings

Most University academic facilities are open to the public from 7:00 a.m. until the latest evening classes let out. Administrative buildings are generally locked at 9:00 p.m. When the University is closed, all buildings are locked and may be opened only by authorized personnel.

Campus Escort Service

During nighttime hours when the shuttle service is not in operation, Campus Police offer an escort service anywhere on campus, providing the assurance of safe travel. This service is available seven days a week. To reach the escort service, call extension 2000 from any on-campus phone.

Campus Housing

Access to the residence halls is restricted to residents and their guests. Guests may only stay as long as they observe the procedures, policies and regulations established by the residents, staff and the University. Residents are responsible for their guest's behavior.

As an added security measure, Kuhlman, Brockman, Buenger and Husman Halls and Fenwick Place are equipped with an intrusion/burglar alarm that is monitored 24 hours a day by Campus Police. Violating or abusing the alarms will result in severe disciplinary action and may be subject to prosecution under Ohio statutes.

Cincinnati and Xavier

Xavier is located within the city of Cincinnati, recently rated 9th among America's 40 safest cities by Forbes magazine.
