Health & Safety: With my personal experience and from what I have heard, the campus police have a great presence on campus. This could be a very good thing, preventing students from harming themselves or others, but I also have a feeling that police have made it hard for some people to enjoy the college experience. A lot of people I know, including myself, hole myself up in my room in night instead of enjoying ourselves across campus. The campus is relatively quiet, but I am grateful for having the campus police number on hand.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Robert Morris University's main campus is a relatively small one in which the health and safety of students is not in danger. Students feel safe enough to walk alone, both during the day and at night. Dark areas are well-lit, and dorms are well-protected. And if students do have any qualms, the campus police do have a visible (though not overbearing) presence, so safety is never in question.

When it comes to health, RMU offers the Student Health Center, located on the second floor of the Nicholson Center across from the resident student mailroom. Student Health Services' availability is convenient in the sense that it is very easy to get to, but the hours aren't as convenient, only open for an hour on certain days. RMU also offers counseling services, both a crisis counselor and a psychotherapist (who is available two times a week during the school year and once a week during the summer). The Center for Student Success is also a place for RMU students to seek help for health or counseling reasons, if need be. Overall, RMU takes the health and safety of its students very seriously.
