College Freshman

Health & Safety: The only review that I have is on the system set up for the dorms, which I think is amazing! The care that Linfield has for their students to put an adult on the floor to keep us safe is amazing and I would rate that a 4, only because I haven't had the opportunity to physically experience the system yet.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health and safety on campus is overall good. Assault cases are typically handled in a timely manner, and taken care of.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think it is pretty secure and well lit in general. Many are willing to escort anyone who is concerned about their safety.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: there were some scary assaults my first year, but there have been none in the last two years, and campus police are very present on weekends and make sure no one is too drunk, or drunk at all. they have panic buttons all around campus for emergencies, but when you have dead car battery or are locked out of your building they can take up to an hour to arrive. they are still very friendly towards us students, even after writing us citations.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Health Centre and College Safety do a great job but the medical options are somewhat rare and expensive.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

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.
