Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe walking around campus. Campus safety is around, and there are always people up and about, even at ungodly hours. The school has great resources in the event of emergencies.

Health & Safety: It's rarer than most colleges, but it still happens. Usually it involves another student causing trouble from another Claremont College.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's generally safe here, but there's always some worry anywhere you go. It might be a little scary walking alone on campus at night when no one is out. I feel safe in every other aspect, though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The city of Claremont is a safe community, and the majority of Pitzer students feels very safe and secure on campus. The Claremont Colleges have campus security available 24/7, as well as emergency call-boxes that will immediately alert Campus Safety if you need help. Though Claremont is a very quiet town, small crimes are committed a few times each year, such as thefts or students running into unwanted "townies" while out for a late-night run by themselves. It is for this reason that Pitzer strongly suggests traveling with at least one other person at all times. If something were to occur, the Pitzer administration always informs the entire student body of the details of the incident, including suggestions on how to avoid these circumstances from reoccurring. Pitzer students use the key-card system, which allows only students to enter Pitzer academic buildings and dormitories. Pitzer also recently installed video surveillance to keep out unwanted visitors.

The Student Health Center is a wonderful addition to the Claremont Colleges that provides physical, emotional, and psychological assistance to all students. The center, located on Pomona's campus, has a friendly staff that never hesitates to offer help.
