Campus Safety

A Safe Campus

The W is committed to providing students, faculty, and staff a safe environment to study, work, and live. We've compiled useful information and resources to help you feel more secure on our campus.
Our state-certified police officers are available around the clock and patrol the 140 acre campus.
The Night Owls – campus transport program provides prompt, courteous, safety escorts to the students, faculty and staff of Mississippi University for Women seven nights a week during the academic year between the hours of 7:00PM to 2:00AM. If Night Owls is not available, you may request a walking escort from W PD.
The W is committed to providing an educational and work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, including gender-based discrimination and harassment. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence, is a form of harassment. The University provides support and resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns related to gender-based discrimination and harassment.
The mission of The W’s Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) is to promote success and campus safety by identifying students who demonstrate behaviors that may be early warning signs of possible disruptive or violent behavior and intervene at the earliest possible point.
