Office of Public Safety

Our office of public safety has your safety top of mind with constant foot and vehicle patrols 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Notre Dame campus is an extremely safe place to live and study. A truly safe campus, however, can be achieved only through cooperation of all students, faculty and staff and the responsible decisions they make every day.

There’s a lot you can do yourself to make our campus even safer, if only by using common sense:

  • Report any suspicious behavior or criminal activity to Campus Security right away by dialing extension 6666 on campus.  Not an emergency?  Call 410-435-0100 or dial extension 5360 from a University phone.
  • Take responsibility for your safety; walk in pairs at night.
  • Keep your residence hall room door locked at all times.
  • Keep all valuables out of sight in your car.
  • Report any unescorted strangers, male or female.
  • Do not prop open any exterior doors.
  • Know the campus location of the Blue Light Emergency Notification System
  • Pay attention to Campus Security bulletins and updates.
