Safety and Security

Campus Safety & Security is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Students who have questions or need help should call 303-256-9500. Campus Safety & Security officers provide crime prevention assistance and first response support for incidents on campus. Incidents of an emergency nature should be reported to the Denver Police at 911, followed by contacting Campus Safety & Security at 303-256-9500.

Campus Safety & Security officers are available to patrol the campus at all times and utilize an integrated electronic access control and camera system. Emergency blue-light telephones are strategically located throughout the campus and directly connect callers to the Campus Safety & Security dispatcher on duty. Campus Safety & Security issues timely alerts to the campus community and, when necessary, has the ability to issue these timely alerts via an emergency notification mass-messaging system.

In compliance with the Higher Education Act, Johnson & Wales University publishes an Annual Security Report and an Annual Fire Safety Report. The Annual Security Report discloses information about campus security policies and statistics concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, on university-controlled property and on public property immediately adjacent to campus. The Annual Fire Safety Report discloses information about campus fire safety policies and procedures and fire statistics for each residence hall. Copies of the reports may be obtained from Campus Safety & Security in person or online.

The university maintains a log of all fires that occur in on-campus housing, and a daily log of reported crimes.
