5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i feel very safe on campus

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is always scary to walk alone at night no matter where you are. CSUN offers rides back to your dorm or car when it starts to get dark out. I find it comforting to know that campus police and patrol are going around at night making sure everyone is safe. I have been escorted by campus patrol plenty of times and they are very friendly and helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Somewhat concerned about having to walk alone.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: CSUN does an amazing job keeping their students safe by allowing them a free access to the police and also having their own security late at night.

Health & Safety: There are specific students who will walk you to your car late at night. I do not have any experience with sexual assault.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

CSUN's security department is pretty extensive, offering a lot of services for students to take advantage of, including crime prevention workshops and viewing crime logs online. It's good that the campus police have a strong presence, as minor offenses like petty theft can happen sometimes. If you're careful with your valuables and don't leave your belongings unattended or unlocked, then you should be OK, though. Aesthetically, the campus offers well-lit pathways, allowing students to walk safely at night. Based on the services and the way the campus is set up, students tend to feel very safe.

When it comes to health services, basic care and routine physicals are free, which is great for the broke college student. Plus, low-cost, over-the-counter products are available to students without a prescription. However, other "alternative" services like acupuncture and massage therapy come at a cost for students, so the health center isn't without its setbacks. All in all, though, if a student gets sick on campus, he or she most definitely can get the right care.
