Safety at Western is everyone’s responsibility. From our residence hall staff to our commissioned police officers, Western puts the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors first. The University Police Department has primary responsibility for law enforcement on campus. They operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year to provide a safe, secure, and accessible educational environment. Blue emergency phones located throughout campus are a direct contact to campus police. Access to campus residence halls is restricted. During the academic year, a student security patrol – known as Greencoats – assists campus police by securing campus buildings and providing safety escorts on campus. Western has a comprehensive emergency response plan that is regularly reviewed and updated, and an emergency notification system that provides health and safety emergency information via e-mail, the web, and cell phone text messaging.
