Health & Safety: I feel that the campus is very safe. No campus is perfect, but I feel that West Chester takes crime prevention very seriously. Whenever something happens, I always receive an email about it. The police are always present and very involved.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: West Chester University does have it's share of petty crime and criminal offense. Such offenses include assaults, underage drinking, and excessive noise especially during late night hours. There are many emergency pillars spread all throughout campus. In the event of an emergency the police force on campus are numerous and readily available.
