4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I constantly see public safety making their rounds on campus. They are very friendly when asking for help or general questions as well.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Webster University is very safe. Since I have been a student there I have not witnessed or went through any security threats or harm.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: This is an evening only campus and it is limited for these types of crimes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Good counseling/basic health services, public safety does their job but isn't too annoying.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: For the most part, I do not have any safety concerns about this college.

Campus safety has never been considered a problem, nor a nuisance, and is usually handled thoroughly and effectively. During the daytime, Public Safety officers can be seen riding about in their go-karts or bicycles to patrol the parking lots or surrounding streets within the campus. The Webster Groves Police also have a tendency to be seen around the campus, roaming in and out of the streets.

At night, the majority of campus is lit up for added safety, especially around Emerson Library and Webster Hall. Security lights light up every parking lot, and Public Safety is always a phone call away. They are there 24/7, and you can contact them anytime through their phone number, extension number, or through one of the many emergency phones found in campus parking lots. Whether it is an escort ride to your car or an actual emergency, Public Safety takes every call into consideration. They are also trained to provide first aid care, and are the first responders to any health emergency that a student may have. In regards to the on-campus physicians, most students go through them without having to go to an off-campus site, unless the situation is too serious for the campus physicians to treat.
