5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not much campus crime. Personal safety is great.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Bryant has a closed campus, which means only students and their guests are allowed on campus. This limits the amount of safety risks, and creates a great college environment for the students!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: DPS is friendly and only wants to provide a happy and safe campus for us. They are not out to bust you. Health services is also great to work with. They have friendly and helpful nurses that know what they are talking about. And health visits are free and easily accessible.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, as long as you do not mind sharing the pathways with drunks on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: DPS is a little strict but are nice

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.
