Campus Safety & Security

Montserrat values the safety and security of our community. Campus Security Officers are stationed at the front desk of the Hardie Building. They patrol the campus on foot respond to calls and offer walking escorts for community members 24/7. Criminal actions or other emergencies are to be reported to the Dean of Students and/or to the Campus Security Manager. Questions about car registration and parking, bike registration, and access to facilities can all be directed to the Dean of Students.

Campus Security works closely with the Beverly Police and Fire Departments to help maintain a safe environment for all students, faculty and staff. The headquarters for the BPD and BFD are within walking distance of campus.
