The Department of Campus Safety provides many services for the Neumann University community and is available 24 hours a day, every day. In addition to patrolling campus buildings, grounds and parking lots, they provide security for residential buildings, athletic events and other University activities.
The Mission of the Neumann University Department of Campus Safety is to provide a safe, secure and peaceful environment to learn, live, work and visit. The Campus Safety Department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is strongly committed to work in partnership with the Neumann community to protect and preserve the human and physical assets of the Institution. The Department of Campus Safety supports the mission of Neumann University which reflects the spirit and values of St. Francis of Assisi while offering a catholic co-educational environment in the Franciscan tradition.
The Campus Safety emergency number X5555 should be called to report all incidents.

Although every effort is made to provide protection for students' personal property, the University cannot assume responsibility for the loss of a students' belongings. We ask that everyone join the Department of Campus Safety in a spirit of shared responsibility for property. Here are some common sense tips to help protect personal belongings.
Never leave valuables such as purses, wallets, credit cards, keys and computer unattended.
Don't lend or give your room key to anyone.
Never tell anyone your PIN for your ATM or other bank machine account.
Record information such as serial numbers and keep them in a safe place.
Never leave your room unlocked, even for a few minutes.
Always lock your vehicle; don't leave valuables in view; secure them in the glove compartment or trunk.
Always lock your bike when leaving outside a secure area.
Consider engraving all your belongings such as bicycles, electronics, etc.
Campus Safety officers are available to provide escorts for students from any location on campus to their vehicle or to another campus building. To request an escort, call 610-558-5555 or 5555 from any campus phone or from the Code Blue phones located in the parking lots.
The Department of Campus Safety is responsible for all fire safety programs at the University. Officers respond whenever a fire alarm is activated in any campus building. If a fire alarm sounds, all persons should leave the building immediately and proceed to a safe location away from the building. Students should follow directions provided by campus Safety officers and other University staff and faculty members. Students should take the time to be familiar with exit pathways in all campus buildings.
