Health & Safety: I receive occasional notifications of crime happening on/near campus but nothing that concerns me; I feel generally safe on campus.

Health & Safety: The health care is great here and always there to go to if needed. I've never needed the police luckily, but they do a good job investigating and are seen a lot around campus.

Health & Safety: Very safe and comfortable environment

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on and around campus. West Chester University has an alert text system that sends out notifications and alerts to everyone who has signed up to receive them. I also get emails to my wcu account if there happens to be an issue on campus.
