The Department of Public Safety's mission is to create, in collaboration with the community, a safe and secure campus environment for all students, staff, faculty, and visitors. Security measures include:

  • Emergency Blue-Light Phones: These two-way call boxes are located strategically throughout campus and allow an individual in need of assistance to communicate directly with Public Safety.
  • Card Access: All residence halls are locked at all times and can be opened only with a Princeton ID card, carried by all students.
  • Campus Escort Program: If students must travel alone, this program provides a safe, reliable way to travel throughout campus. The program consists of a shuttle van (P-Rides Express), augmented by Public Safety officers when the van is not running.
  • Security Patrols: Public Safety officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day.
