Consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in the United States, Thousand Oaks is a perfect location for a small university like CLU. One of the main CLU features students find comfort in is knowing campus is safe and protected. CLU’s Campus Public Safety patrols campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure the safety of the students, staff, and faculty. CPS offers late-night security escort services for those who want to be accompanied to their car, residence hall, or campus building. Campus alerts are sent out through text message and CLU email to students, staff, and faculty to inform them of any identity theft, vehicle and bicycle burglary, and computer theft. There have been instances in which vehicles belonging to residential students have been entered and vandalized in the early hours after midnight. The cars were all unlocked, which prompted CPS to remind residential students to lock their vehicles at all times. Like any other city, Thousand Oaks is not exempt from burglary and theft, but the majority of cases involves petty theft.
Along with the security services provided, CLU also has a health center to help keep students, faculty, and staff healthy and strong. Whether it be treatment of acute medical problems, first aid for noncritical emergencies, or immunizations, students are sure to be taken care of by the friendly, professional staff. Health Services’ main concern is to provide high-quality, low-cost health care treatment so students can place their focus and time toward school.
