Campus Security
Philander Smith College works to ensure the 24-hour safety and security of the College community as well as to visitors to its campus. Our goal is to reduce the incidence of crime or fear of harm or abuse, to keep the campus safe from unauthorized use, and to keep the academic and administrative processes free from disruption, thus Security Officers have the authority to take appropriate action when violations of any regulations occur.
While the College is a gated community, the campus and its facilities are open to the public during business hours and in the evening for particular events. All Philander Smith employees and students must have a parking decal to be permitted on campus after business hours. All guests visiting campus after business hours who are not attending special events must sign in and out at the Security Station. In addition, the Security Station becomes the information center after hours, on weekends and holidays.
