Campus Safety Is a Priority

Every university has a campus. Ours just happens to be an entire city. Point Park University’s Department of Public Safety is responsible for providing all members of the University community with a safe and secure environment to live, learn and work.

The department includes:

  • police officers
  • public safety officers
  • 24-hour dispatch center
  • Emergency Services Division
  • Security Division

Point Park's Office of Public Safety maintains a close working relationship with the Pittsburgh Police Department.

Security for Residence Halls, Suites and Apartments

  • All residence halls have controlled access. 
  • A security desk is on the first floor of every building and is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • All guests need to be accompanied by their host or hostess and must sign in (and sign out) with a valid photo ID at the building’s security station.
  • Each room has a fire alarm and smoke detector.
  • All residence halls are equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.  

On Campus

There is round-the-clock police protection on campus as well as police officers on bikes and on foot patrols, including on the perimeters of campus.

At your request, a police officer will accompany you to your destination on campus.
