Safety

At Bryant, we are committed to your safety. The Department of Public Safety is available 24 hours a day. Bryant's combination of location and commitment to keeping students safe makes the University one of the safest campuses in the country.

The department's 24 full-time staff members - including 20 patrol officers and command staff - are trained to enforce campus rules and regulations as well as local, state, and federal laws. Officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - on foot, bicycle, or motor vehicle - and monitor the premises at fixed posts including the Entry Control Station at the main entrance to the campus.

A park and drive “at your own risk” policy is in effect at all times. DPS officers patrol parking areas and roadways on a regular basis but the university cannot give unconditional guarantee of security and is not responsible for personal injury, damage or theft of vehicles or belongings.
