The security features and personnel at Stevenson University help students feel safe and secure at all times. All residential buildings are accessed by identification cards that must be swiped at building entrances. There are also security cameras around campus and in some buildings. There are Emergency Call Boxes on each of the resident buildings and Emergency Blue Light stations around the parking lots on both campuses. There is also a gatehouse at the entrance to the Owings Mills campus. The gate goes down around 7 p.m. and on the weekends, and is operated by campus security staff.
Security is made up of retired and off-duty cops who become instantly on-duty if there is any problem. The security force is always very helpful and informative, with one office located in Owings Mills at the Avalon Community Center. They are happy to answer questions or let you back into your room when you lock yourself out (The first time, at least. After that, there is a fee.). There is also a brand new campus alert system that is accessible to students from their email or their cell phones, helping students become aware of emergencies (and snow days) from anywhere on or off campus.
