Safety and Security

Safety is a shared goal.

We are resolutely focused on maintaining a safe and secure environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The University has been fortunate in not experiencing a significant number of serious crimes to date, but we remain vigilant. Our professionally trained Public Safety staff is responsible for community policing programs designed to ensure that students and their possessions are protected to the maximum degree possible. Photo ID is required at all times for entry into any of our buildings.

We encourage students, faculty, and staff to stay alert, to take precautions, and to report crimes and suspicious activities immediately. By supporting each other, we can improve the quality of life at Holy Family University. The best way you can help is to become involved: Learn about safety initiatives currently in effect by contacting the Public Safety Department.

Parents and members of surrounding communities can ask to receive security notifications as email or texts sent to your mobile. To request these, complete the form below. These notifications are sent automatically to all of our students and staff.

Please contact our office at any time for information or to pass on your security suggestions. To share your security ideas with the Public Safety Department, call us at 267-341-3361, or e-mail the Director of Public Safety, This email address is being protected from spambots.
