Your safety and peace of mind are critical to your overall experience at Randolph-Macon.

When you feel safe and comfortable on campus and on the quiet streets of our small town, then you can focus on learning. 

safety is a shared responsibility

Our dedicated 24/7 campus safety officers, law enforcement partners in the town of Ashland, and our campus community all play a part in making our campus safe. It starts with being prepared, and looking out for each other. 

Campus Safety officers patrol Randolph-Macon 7 days a week, and are available for emergencies 24/7, 365 days a year. Randolph-Macon has a low rate of personal property crime and personal safety incidents, in part thanks to our officers and their proactive approach. 

Emergency call boxes are located in each residence hall and in academic areas of campus; they connect immediately to the Office of Campus Safety.
