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.
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.
All members of the campus community should enroll themselves in emergency alerts. These alerts are sent via text message in the event of dangerous weather, fire, or other threats to the campus.
Members of the public, including families of Yellow Jackets, may enroll in alerts by clicking here.
Our Residence Halls are protected by a sophisticated access control system. Exterior doors are locked 24 hours a day. Students gain entry by using their smart cards.
To help ensure the safety of residence halls, students should:
Overnight guests are allowed, but no more than two consecutive nights and not more than two, two-night periods within a 30-day period. The host student of an overnight guest must obtain permission from their roommate before the guest’s arrival.
All non-RMC overnight guests must be registered with Campus Safety. Overnight guests are not allowed when residence halls are closed or during exam week (for students and non-students).
