The University of Western Ontario takes pride in its healthy and safe campus. The campus police have an office in the center of the University grounds, which immediately establishes a sense of security. The Student Health Services (SHS) organization offers plenty of nurses, doctors, and technicians that address health concerns of students at a convenient, central location on campus. Making an appointment is simple, and the high-quality services are thorough and efficient.
Safety on campus is best obtained preemptively. Western Foot Patrol is readily available to walk or drive students home at night. At night, campus is well-lit, with numerous code blue emergency lights and phones for students who feel uncomfortable walking home alone. Should a student run into an emergency situation, the Student Emergency Response Team provides EMS responses on campus with an average response time of two minutes. With a plethora of services in the areas of health and safety, Western always looks after its students.
