Health and safety is heavily promoted on campus. Campus police officers patrol campus 24 hours a day, and there are tons of safety services on campus, including E2Campus, a notification system that alerts students and faculty to emergencies, alerts, and even weather advisories. The Troy University Police Department also offers the Operation ID program. Just bring valuable personal items to the safety office, where they will be marked and logged into a system that will help if the item is ever stolen. This attention to safety also extends to the dorms: Residence halls can only be accessed with a key fob and all guests in the dorms must be signed in and out and escorted at all times by their host. Also, the Resident Housing Association informs students of the dangers of domestic violence during the month of October.
Troy also takes the health of its students very seriously. During flu season, students are encouraged to go to the health center on campus to receive a free shot. Some student organizations also promote health and safety issues. For example, the African American Alliance informs students about sickle cell anemia, breast cancer, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
