Our Security Team

Our Campus Security team provides security guards on duty all day every day.

Our Security office is located in Tower Hall on our Residential Quad. Substations are also located on Historic Quad and at the Equestrian Center.

Students play a large role in the success of any security program and should always feel free to report any unusual activity. Many improvements to our security process have been made as a result of student feedback at student forums.


Services offered include:

  • Three on-campus security offices
  • Security escorts on request
  • Security cameras and emergency phones maintained throughout campus
  • Key card access
  • Regular group bus trips to popular shopping spots
  • Free bike rental with Stephens’ signature pink bikes – helmets, too
