The majority of students feels safe on campus. The surrounding town does not have a lot of crime compared to larger cities. Special safety measures include the emergency blue-lights around campus and key cards used by students to get into the dorms. Campus security does a good job of patrolling the campus, as well as the streets. There is the occasional stolen bike or laptop, but generally there are no break-ins at the dorms. Because campus security is constantly patrolling, be careful in the way of underage drinking because you do not want to be stopped late at night on the weekends.
College Public Safety provides an escort service in the evening and nighttime hours. All residence halls are equipped with yellow emergency call-boxes and blue-light emergency call stations, which are located throughout the campus. Pushing the red emergency button on either of the devices will immediately connect a student with the College Public Safety office. Academic buildings, facilities, dorms, and suburb apartments on campus are secured at all times and equipped with a computerized card access system controlled by Linfield Campus Safety.
