Public Safety

La Roche University is proud to be ranked as one of the safest four-year private universities in the United States*. We are committed to making sure you feel safe when you enroll at La Roche.

  • Each residence hall has electronic keycard access at the entrance, and it is in operation 24 hours a day. That means only students; staff and faculty can access the halls with an authorized keycard.
  • The University has nearly 30 security phones on campus. Anyone who picks up the receiver is automatically connected to the public safety officer on duty on campus.
  • La Roche University public safety officers are available to assist you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can also provide a security escort for you (upon request).
  • La Roche University offers programs during orientation for students on basic personal safety techniques, including locking your doors, reporting suspicious activity, remaining with guests at all times and acquiring guest passes for overnight guests.
  • Timely warnings: In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the administration constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, the Director of Public Safety will issue a timely warning via the college's e2Campus Emergency Notification System. e2Campus is a self-service, web-based, mass notification system that empowers the university to send instant alerts to students, faculty and staff via text messaging and email in case of an emergency. All students are urged to subscribe to this free service.

By publishing the Annual Security Report, the La Roche University Office of Public Safety demonstrates its compliance with the requirements of the Pennsylvania College and University Security Information Act  and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The manual provides relevant statistics, information on university policies, regulations regarding campus security and safety tips.
