Safety and Security

The Office of Safety and Security supports a safe environment in which all members of the College community can learn, live, teach, and work. Open 24 hours a day, it responds immediately to potential criminal incidents, suspicious activity, requests for assistance, and emergency situations. It also alerts appropriate representatives of the College when they are needed after regular business hours. Safety and security officers regularly patrol buildings, residence halls, and grounds by foot, vehicle, and bicycle. Though not sworn police officers, they work closely with the Oberlin City Police and Fire departments to carry out their responsibilities in a diligent and courteous manner.
