Campus Security

In this Section

In order to ensure the overall safety of our students, the Office of Campus Safety & Security exhausts all options to keep you safe. A 24-hour campus patrol, immediate access to the Village of Potsdam Police Department and a supplemental Student Safety Patrol are all ways campus security works to keep you safe.

Each campus police officer is certified by the State of New York as a Security Guard and works closely with local law enforcement agencies.

The office also works to meet specialized needs of the University, including maintenance of public order, incident response and documentation, emergency first-aid treatment, responding to other emergencies, traffic and parking supervision.

Keeping Clarkson’s campus a safe place to be during the day and at night, the Office of Campus Security keeps the University’s crime statistics low.
