4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Quinnipiac is rated one of the safest campuses in the US for a reason. Never have i felt unsafe. Public safety is always around and there is no crime. Even when i am walking alone at night back to my room i feel safe. Quinnipiac also has the blue light system, although i dont believe anyone has ever used it.

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They do their job. I would have said it's good but it wasn't an option for that.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Quinnipiac as a whole works hard at keeping campus a safe place to be. We have drills and practice emergency lock downs. However, it is difficult to say that as a woman I 100% feel safe around students whom I may not know of.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Voted one of the safest schools in the country. Public safety is always around to help.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Quinnipiac University is for all intents and purposes a very safe campus on which to live. There is a 24-hour security guard on both campuses at all times. Security at Quinnipiac is easy to spot, as the University has its own marked Ford Explorers as patrol vehicles, with a light on top. The campus is safe to walk around at night because it is in a suburban area. The places students would likely be walking to would be the dorms, the library, or the cafeteria. The library is open 24/7 and has armed security guards manning the desk from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. If any student walks in to the library during these hours, he or she must present a student ID to the security guards. 

Quinnipiac's main security office is located on the main campus and is fully equipped with its own detective and rolling cameras around different hot spots on campus. Security is always willing to drive students or pick them up on campus when they do not want to walk alone. On weekend nights, there are security guards waiting for students to be dropped off from shuttles, to make sure they are able to walk and safely go in the right direction toward their dorm. Quinnipiac also uses a visitor registration system for all of its guests. Students must register their guest in the system, and the guest must pick up a guest pass from security. This guest pass must be with the visiting student at all times throughout the course of his or her stay. One thing that many students, especially upperclassmen at York Hill campus, gripe about is security's handling of parking. There is a designated 20-minute lot outside of the residence hall. Depending on what security guard is on duty, the student will be given a ticket if he or she stays in the spot longer than 20 minutes. Tickets usually start at $10 but can go up to $50.
