Health & Safety

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Considering the campus is in the middle of nowhere, there aren't any issues from the outside community. The occasional theft here and there, but I feel safe overall. I could walk around at 3 in the morning and not feel in danger whatsoever.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school officers do not have guns.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health Services is open a majority of the time, free, and very helpful. There have been very few sexual assault cases and they have been handled appropriately.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The administration makes more of an effort to dismiss sexual assaults on campus rather than educate the student body about how to prevent it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Bryant has been ranked as one of the safest campuses in the United States. Most students do not think twice about walking through campus alone late at night, and many leave their doors unlocked and laundry unattended in the laundry room. Students will also leave their laptops and belongings in the library with no worry of anything happening when they want to go grab some food. The residence halls lock at 11 p.m. every night, and only students who live in that building can enter with their student IDs. The Department of Public Safety is constantly patrolling campus. DPS officers have a visible presence and offer a strong sense of security. Anyone entering campus must pass through the entry control station at the only entrance onto campus. A DPS officer is always present at this station to monitor cars coming onto campus, and at night and on weekends, the officer will check student IDs for people driving on campus. DPS is also very quick to react to any situation and responds almost immediately to any calls received. So, whether you locked yourself out of your room or your roommate has alcohol poisoning (an EMT-certified DPS officer is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week), you can rely on them to be there within minutes. Health Services is located in Hall 16 and provides on-site confidential clinical care and health education services free of charge to students. A full staff of nurse practitioners, medical physicians, and health educators are available to provide any treatment and counseling students might need.

Did You Know?
Health Services has been working hard to connect with students who might not make an appointment to come to them. Recent initiatives include a weekly table in the Rotunda where students can stop by between classes to make appointments, ask for advice, and pick up samples (over-the-counter meds, Band-Aids, condoms); a Bryant Health Services Facebook page; and weekly health-related blog posts on the Health Services website.
