Campus Safety

A Safe Environment for Monmouth’s Leaders

Your personal safety and the security of the campus community are vital concerns to Monmouth University. At Monmouth, we take every precaution to make sure the entire campus community is safe, including:

  • 20 state-certified police officers, many having more than 25 years of experience in law enforcement.
  • 12 safety officers and seven traffic attendants to provide vehicle assistance, help with medical emergencies, and ensure safe living environments in our first-year residence halls.
  • More than 90 emergency phones in locations across our 159-acre campus.
  • Education programs concerning alcohol consumption, sexual assault, violence prevention, and more.
  • A safe escort service for when you need someone to walk you home on campus late at night.
  • Regular collaboration with West Long Branch, Long Branch, and Ocean Township police, fire, and ambulance departments.
  • The use of Regroup, a communications system that connects students to the University instantly should there be an emergency.

While Monmouth’s campus and surrounding communities have historically low crime rates, our Monmouth University Police Department—available 365 days a year—will provide assistance if a crime does occur.
