Campus Safety

The Public Safety department at the University of the Arts works to ensure the safety and security of faculty, staff and students at the University as well as visitors to our campus. Our officers are stationed in University buildings 24 hours a day, seven days a week, patrol the campus regularly, and maintain ongoing contact with the Philadelphia Police Department and other law enforcement agencies.

The department enforces both University policies and local, state or federal laws and statutes that apply on our campus, to promote a safe campus for all members of the University community as well as their guests.
