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.
