Health & Safety: There's not really any crime on campus, just an occasional drunk kid being dumb. It's not really smart to walk around the area surrounding campus at night, as it can be a little dangerous and there are the occasional muggings. Loyola Police definitely have a presence on campus, but it's not overwhelming and they're never threatening. Loyola has the Blue Light System, which is seen at basically every campus in the country nowadays, but I always feel very safe on campus. The school isn't physically closed off from the surrounding area, but outside people never really venture onto campus except for the one time that a Domino's delivery guy made a wrong turn and ending up driving around the quad.

Health & Safety: The LOPO are everywhere. All I've heard is people getting in trouble with LOPO rather than being assisted. But in the rare case that you do need assistance they are slow to respond and often just relay their messages to the actual authorities.

Health & Safety: Though Loyola itself is a very safe campus, being placed in a dangerous city like Baltimore there is always room for some fear.

Health & Safety: Our safety is a big concern and campus police do all that they can do to keep us safe. however, sexual assaults and robbing happens occasionally.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Loyola's campus itself is incredibly safe. The majority of students feel very safe when they are on campus, and campus police, shuttles, and student escorts are always available should a student feel uncomfortable walking around alone at night. The areas surrounding campus, however, can be unsafe at times, especially at night. There are some great areas to visit, but at night, you have to be aware of your surroundings. It is always a good idea to travel in groups and remain alert if traveling in these areas at night. 

There is a blue-light safety system on campus. These lights are placed all around the campus, and if a student is in an unsafe situation, all he or she needs to do is press the button on the nearest blue light, and campus police will come to their aid. Most students do not find that they are ever in need of using this system, but it is in place as a safety precaution. Many students feel safe and assured having it on campus. If a crime does occur in the immediate area, especially if a Loyola student is a victim, students are always notified via email, and the school and campus safety ensure that students are well versed on safety tips to prevent these unsafe situations.
