5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Loyola is a safe campus, even though it's near an unsafe area. There is crime that goes on outside of campus, but the Loyola police always notify the students and are present on campus to make sure that nothing goes amock.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security threats are always reported to the students via email and text - you know when something's going on and where to avoid. Through campus is safe, relatively, but the west end is a little seedy.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: All of campus is well lit and the school is in a good neighborhood, except the very east side of campus.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Loyola has a great campus and as a four year student I have always felt safe. Unfortunately, it is placed in the center of Baltimore and borders a very unsafe road in the neighborhood. It is up to the students to be smart when traveling on and around campus especially near York Road, Baltimore.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Theft on campus is very low. Personal safety is not a concern. There are many campus police officers during day and night. There is a free student escort service that will pick you up and drop you off to places on campus late at night.

Loyola's campus itself is incredibly safe. The majority of students feel very safe when they are on campus, and campus police, shuttles, and student escorts are always available should a student feel uncomfortable walking around alone at night. The areas surrounding campus, however, can be unsafe at times, especially at night. There are some great areas to visit, but at night, you have to be aware of your surroundings. It is always a good idea to travel in groups and remain alert if traveling in these areas at night. 

There is a blue-light safety system on campus. These lights are placed all around the campus, and if a student is in an unsafe situation, all he or she needs to do is press the button on the nearest blue light, and campus police will come to their aid. Most students do not find that they are ever in need of using this system, but it is in place as a safety precaution. Many students feel safe and assured having it on campus. If a crime does occur in the immediate area, especially if a Loyola student is a victim, students are always notified via email, and the school and campus safety ensure that students are well versed on safety tips to prevent these unsafe situations.
