Campus Safety

The mission of Capital's Department of Public Safety is to provide a safe and secure environment for the University community and all its members, and to provide a variety of services to enhance the quality of life on campus.

Many Capital Students come from smaller towns and may not have had much experience living in a large city. Capital offers many resources to help you adjust and to help you make informed decisions about your health and safety.
