Campus Security

Brescia University is dedicated to providing a safe, protected and orderly environment and considers the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, and visitors to be of paramount importance. The University employs a professional security staff to protect the members of the campus community.

With a valid Brescia University ID, members of the Brescia University community may enjoy access to academic, recreational, and administrative facilities on campus. Access to the residence halls is limited to students living in those facilities and their guests. The public may attend cultural and athletic events in the facilities where the events are held.
