College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on my campus. I have had several night classes and needed to walk back to my dorm alone. I think that the police are there if you need them. However I've only seen the police around, busting parties and giving out tickets, in this sense I think that they are more of an annoyance. We have fire drills in our dorm halls every now and then. In a freshman seminar class, several campus police officers come in and talk to the students about safety and important campus policies. Whenever there is a health problem, a student can go to the health center. Depending on the time of the day, the doctor may not be in. Therefore, the student may have to come back the next day, which can sometimes be an issue.

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is the right amount. They are there when or if you need them, and they are only a call away if an emergency arises.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Everything closes at 12, so many aren't out past then.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is nothing to fear here except the police. Not much of the student body stays here on the weekends, and the people that do just want to have a good time. The police are very good at keeping the campus safe, but they are overbearing in that they are very strict and always expect the worst from students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have constant patrols by the campus police. And mostly everyone is respectful.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Robert Morris University's main campus is a relatively small one in which the health and safety of students is not in danger. Students feel safe enough to walk alone, both during the day and at night. Dark areas are well-lit, and dorms are well-protected. And if students do have any qualms, the campus police do have a visible (though not overbearing) presence, so safety is never in question.

When it comes to health, RMU offers the Student Health Center, located on the second floor of the Nicholson Center across from the resident student mailroom. Student Health Services' availability is convenient in the sense that it is very easy to get to, but the hours aren't as convenient, only open for an hour on certain days. RMU also offers counseling services, both a crisis counselor and a psychotherapist (who is available two times a week during the school year and once a week during the summer). The Center for Student Success is also a place for RMU students to seek help for health or counseling reasons, if need be. Overall, RMU takes the health and safety of its students very seriously.
