About the Office of Campus Safety
The Andrews University Office of Campus Safety operates 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. This office conducts security patrols for the campus, which includes the residential buildings, academic buildings and recreational areas. Our employees have received training in areas such as emergency response, first aid, CPR, life safety and fire code.
The University has given Campus Safety the primary responsibilities for code enforcement within universities’ buildings to help maintain compliancy with both life safety and fire codes.
Campus Safety seeks to preserve an environment where our diverse social, cultural, and academic environments are able to flourish. Any specific emergency needs we may have for fire or police services are provided by our friends in the Berrien Springs Oronoko Township Fire and Police Depts. They can be reached by calling 911 during an emergency.
The mission of Campus Safety is to help maintain a safe and secure environment for the entire campus population. We strive to accomplish this by providing a well trained and professional work force who strive to maintain a safe environment that is conducive to learning and is consistent with the educational goals of this diverse institution.
