4 College Junior

Health & Safety: LMU constantly has Public Safety patrolling the college ensuring that it is violent free and as safe as possible. There are rare instances of campus crimes and they tend to be dealt with fairly well.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: First semester, living in the dorm rooms, I got really sick and the health center could always squeeze me in quickly and provide me the proper antibiotics and care.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: I haven't had to deal with health and safety very much, but all my friends give it great reviews.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is a very safe campus. Public Safety is always around.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: It is not a matter of them doing their job it is the excessive power they feel over this campus and over the students. We do not have campus police we have security guards with not as much power as actual police on other campuses and they feel just as entitled as any cop and they do't have laws or the constitution behind them for the way that they treat certain groups of student s on campus.

Unlike other Los Angeles universities, LMU does not need the security measures of a military base to keep students safe. There are two entrances: the main entrance off Lincoln Boulevard and a second entrance at Loyola Boulevard. A security booth stands at the gated front entrance to the campus, but the gate remains open during the day. After 11 p.m. you must swipe your student ID card to get in. The back entrance off of Loyola Boulevard offers access only to students and faculty with ID cards, so visitors have to go through the main entrance. The light security at the entrances allows people from the surrounding neighborhoods to walk on to campus, but occasionally it also lets in a few shady characters. However, public safety’s police-styles SUVs patrol the campus constantly. If a serious problem develops, they call the LAPD.

Traffic regulations on campus are strict, so one of the public safety officers’ main duties is to issue parking tickets. They frequently respond to reports of underage drinking or minor thefts, but students cause virtually all of these incidents. There are also occasional incidents of harassment between students, but only a few cases of assault in the University’s history. The flaw in LMU security is in the gated entrances. Anyone can enter the campus on foot, and usually, guards at the security booth do not stop cars that do not have a University parking permit. But overall, students do not worry about physical safety because serious or violent crime is almost non-existent

Did You Know?
  • On April 26, 2004, construction crews nearby unearthed two World War II-era explosive casings, forcing LMU to evacuate half of the campus. The school canceled classes for the day, and LMU students responded in characteristic fashion: campus bands gave an impromptu concert, and students put aside their books to play Frisbee as the helicopters hovered overhead.
  • In Fall 2004, a series of incidents involving vandalism and racial slurs rocked the LMU campus. Students responded by hosting a protest march and anti-discrimination rally.
