For assistance or campus EMERGENCY please contact us at (502) 873-4444 or by the on campus extension 4444.
Campus Safety cannot stress enough that safety begins with the individual. Always be aware of your surroundings, day or night. Know where you are going and how you will get there. Walk in groups if at all possible. Have your keys ready. If approached by unknown individuals, tell them to stop and go away. Do not give money to panhandlers. If you don’t feel comfortable in the situation, please call Campus Safety and let us handle it. If you suspect an unsafe environment, call Campus Safety at 873-4444 from a cell phone or 4444 from any Campus phone for an escort. Have your student ID with you at all times while on Campus. If asked, please produce it. This is for your safety so identification can be made that you are in fact a student/staff member. Do not leave valuables out in plain sight in your vehicle. Lock them in the trunk or leave them in the room. Keep track of your personal belongings–purses, computers, flash drives, car keys, coats, sweaters, iPods/music players. If an item is lost, call Campus Safety as soon as possible with a description of the item and where and when it was last seen. Campus Safety has a Lost and Found Box for items that are turned in, but a majority of lost items are never located.
The federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Safety Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and other federal law requires colleges and universities to publish and distribute an annual security and fire safety report containing policies and procedures as well as campus crime statistics.
Spalding University’s annual security & fire safety report contains information regarding security and personal safety including topics such as crime prevention, fire safety, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures, behavioral intervention and other matters of importance related to safety on campus. The report also contains information about crime statistics for the three previous calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Spalding University; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. You can obtain a copy of this report by contacting Campus Safety at (502) 873-4444 or by downloading the document from this page. The report is sent to all students, faculty and staff via e-mail on October 1st every year. The report can also be accessed from the Spalding Portal by clicking on Campus Safety.
Spalding University uses e2campus to send alerts on University weather closings, building closings, campus emergencies and other high priority announcements. You can sign up to be notified by text message, voice mail, or email.
Spalding Campus Safety Department is on Campus 24/7. If you ever feel the need for an escort to or from your vehicle or to or from your class, please do not hesitate to call 873-4444 from a cell phone or 4444 from any Campus phone and request an Uniformed Safety Officer for the escort. We will be there as soon as we can and provide safe passage to where you need to go. This program exists for staff and students alike. If there are any questions in this matter please feel free to contact Daniel Spink at 873-4240.
