Campus Safety & Security

The Department of Public Safety at Holy Family University is resolutely focused on maintaining a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. A 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 campus buildings.

We encourage students, faculty, and staff to stay alert, take precautions, and report crimes and suspicious activities immediately. By supporting one another, we can ensure 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.
