Department of Campus Safety and Security


543 A Magnolia Avenue
The Department of Campus Safety and Security strives to provide a safe and secure campus environment through educational programming, collaboration with university constituents, and provision of various safety and security services. Campus Safety and Security is responsible for the university's comprehensive emergency management program; the Night Security Shuttle, which provides door-to-door transportation on campus at night; the campus security camera system; contract security services; and administration of the contract with the City of Auburn for police and fire services. The department maintains campus crime statistics and publishes the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, available at

Campus Safety and Security sends AU ALERT messages for campus emergencies requiring immediate action and to convey critical, time-sensitive information. Follow @AUALERT on Twitter, like the Facebook page at, or send the phrase “Follow @AUALERT" to the number “40404" to receive text alerts through Twitter (no Twitter account or app required).

Campus Safety and Security also offers Campus Safety and Active Shooter Response Training for students. This training provides an overview of safety devices on campus, preparing for emergencies, and options during an incident involving an active shooter. While we hope we never have to deal with such a situation, it is very important for the university and its community to be empowered with options on how to respond. A training calendar is available on the department's website.
