Safe Campus

Any emergency or act that is criminal in nature should be reported to University Police

Southeastern is one of the safest campuses in the region, but we don’t stop there.
We have taken significant steps to ensure that our campus remains a safe place to
live and learn. In addition to the many security measures already in place, we encourage
daily personal safety among students, faculty, staff and visitors while on campus.

University Police uses the Lion Safe App to help facilitate on-campus safety. The app has multiple virtual
features including safety walks, friend walks, and blue light phones. Also accessible
are campus maps, support resources, the Lion Traxx tracker, a safety toolbox, emergency
plans, and a section to report tips. The Lion Safe App is available for download on
the App Store and Google Play.
