Public Safety

Department of Public Safety

The safety of Grand Canyon University's (GCU) students, faculty, staff and guests at our campus and satellite locations is a top priority. In addition to protecting our locations 24 hours a day, we have resources so you can report and respond to security issues. Students who bring visitors onto campus are responsible for informing them of campus safety regulations and rules.

If you are concerned for your safety, our on-duty public safety officers will escort you to your vehicle or assist if you have vehicle problems. Our blue light phones are around campus and in the parking garages so you can call for help or report a problem just by pressing a button. And, we ensure our student body is informed by the RAVE system by broadcast text if there is an emergency affecting the campuses.

If you need assistance anytime you are on campus, please call 855-GCU-LOPE and ask for public safety. In case of an emergency, please dial 911.
