Department of Campus Safety

Campus Safety at AU

The Department of Campus Safety is located on the first floor of the Morrison Commons. Officers are available 24 hours a day year round, including weekends and holidays, to provide protection and service to students, staff and visitors. Campus Safety Officers also provide a variety of services to the campus community. 

Campus safety and security at Augustana is a shared responsibility. One of the best protections is an aware, informed, alert campus community — students, faculty and staff who use reason and caution — along with a professional security presence. The Department of Campus Safety is dedicated to serving the campus community and working hand-in-hand with our community partners to address safety issues on and around the campus. The department is committed to enhancing the quality of life of the campus community, integrating the best practices of public and private policing with state-of-the-art security technology.

All members of the campus community are encouraged to immediately report any suspicious or criminal activity to Campus Safety.
