Victim/Witness Resources

Campus Safety Resources

Safety resources are locations you can find help in an emergency, or places you can go if you feel your personal safety may be at risk. You should become aware of the locations of safety resources before you need them, rather than during a panic situation when you are less likely to think clearly.

Shuttle Services

Shuttle Schedule and Route

Police Station

The police station is in the rear basement of Monican Hall. We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including holidays and vacation periods.

Bike, Cruiser and Foot Patrols

These officers make frequent checks of all campus areas. If you need assistance, you may wave down an officer at any time. Please do so safely.

Buildings and Offices

Any campus building or office is available as a safety resource for people seeking help.

 There are three major components to Guardian:

  • Emergency call function. One-touch calling for local 911 or Merrimack College police.
