The Gonzaga campus is fairly quiet because it has almost no outside traffic. Surrounded by heavily student-populated neighborhoods, one rarely sees anyone on campus who isn't a part of the University. Campus Security patrols around the clock, and there are many blue-light emergency phones around. Theft, bikes in particular, is the preeminent crime. Unless you have a sturdy U-lock for your bike, there's a chance of being robbed blind when you turn your back. That being said, the dorms are always locked, and break-ins are rare.
Off campus, students have to fend for themselves. Campus Security is not a major presence in the Logan neighborhood. The farther from campus, the more questionable the area. Another frequent complaint is that Campus Security and Student Life are woefully inadequate and insensitive in cases of sexual assault. The burden of proof is on the victim, and the alleged attackers are generally given the benefit of the doubt. Gonzaga seems hesitant to expel students—be it for sexual assault, violent behavior, or drug-related activities. But is Gonzaga markedly worse than any other university? Probably not. The bottom line is: Be smart. Don't walk alone late at night off campus (especially girls), and don't expect your belongings to be safe from theft on campus, either.
