Campus Safety and Security

Campus safety and security officers help protect students and their property, as well as protecting college property. Furthermore, these officers will escort students to their cars upon request and maintain parking surveillance. The campus also relies on the Orange Police Department when needed.

The direct line for campus security is (409) 670-0789.

All emergencies on campus should be reported to the Safety & Security Coordinator at (409) 882-3910.

For emergency use, there are telephones located in the hallways of all the campus buildings, which dial directly to campus security.

The campus Safety and Security office is located in the Academic Center building, Room 149.
