Health & Safety: Mudd is an extremely safe campus, mostly because of the honor code, which means students respect each other and their property. Campus security patrols the campuses but I have never interacted with them and I don't feel unsafe if they aren't around. Generally, they leave parties alone and just deal with drunk and belligerent people.

Health & Safety: Very Safe, Just Be Responsible – The only real problem we have is theft, which generally occurs when people leave things outside and unsecured. Campus Safety is generally very helpful in supporting a positive environment.

Niche User

Health & Safety: I know if anything ever happened here, other Mudders would be there to protect me. It's a very nice feeling to know that you can trust your fellow students, and that there really is nothing to be afraid of.

Niche User

Health & Safety: Honestly, Campus Security could do a better job than they do, but I still feel very safe because I know I'm not going to be victimized by my fellow students, and I know if I did need help, people would come. I've really never felt unsafe on this campus.

When you walk around Mudd late at night, you can see why people feel safe here. There's always music playing. People are always outside studying on couches. And a security officer (or two) is always patrolling the parking lots. Nobody at Mudd locks dorm room doors. It's just assumed that students will take care of each other's stuff. People know that if they lose something and it's found by a Mudder, it will get returned. The Honor Code system is one of the most powerful security devices on this campus. People live by the Honor Code here, so the only thing to be remotely worried about are occasional random incidents that happen off campus. All of the academic buildings are always open to students, too, so there is a very trusting environment at Mudd.

Harvey Mudd's security thrives on its feeling of community, as opposed to an invasive task force of security. It's not that there aren't any officers; it's just that the Honor Code removes the need for trivial security concerns found on other campuses. Mudders are entirely comfortable with each other and promote a great sentiment of trust. In contrast to larger universities, at Mudd, students don't worry about their fellow students making off with their possessions. There are occasional off-campus incidents, like people trying to steal bikes or skateboards. Cars do get broken into, but mostly during break when no students are here. Aside from the occasional random incident, though, Mudders tend to feel safe at HMC.
