Welcome to the Dartmouth College Department of Safety and Security’s website! Whether you are a prospective or current student, faculty or staff member; a member of our alumni; a parent or family member; or a visitor to our Campus, we want your experience at Dartmouth College to be a safe and enjoyable one.

The Department of Safety and Security provides Dartmouth College with professional safety and security services that include incident response, investigation, and follow up of all security related matters that come to our attention. We strive to engage our community via education, information sharing and training programs, as our strongest ally in deterrence and prevention. The women and men of this department are dedicated to the Mission of the College and, as stated in our Mission Statement, to the maintenance of a campus environment that supports academic excellence, independent thought, and cultural collaboration.

You will often hear that Dartmouth is a special place; its depth of character, traditions, diversity, commitment to academic excellence, as well as its beautiful natural surroundings contribute to making Dartmouth such an exemplary academic environment. Please enjoy the Campus and take full advantage of all Dartmouth has to offer, and in doing so we encourage you to take appropriate personal and collective precautions when living, learning, working, visiting and playing at Dartmouth. We, at the Department of Safety and Security, are here to help you at all times: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will see us around as you enjoy the Campus, so please feel free to say hello or stop by and visit our offices on the 3rd floor of 5 Rope Ferry Road.

Kindly take a few minutes to peruse through our website which we have designed to familiarize you with our Department, and provide you with information on the many services we offer to assist you in having a safe and enjoyable experience at Dartmouth. I encourage you to take advantage of our services and to contact us, at any time and without hesitation, as we will be delighted to hear from you and help you!
