Safety is a shared responsibility. Understanding the importance of cooperation, education, and a police-citizen partnership makes our campus, as well as our local community a safe and joyful place. We welcome your comments and suggestions for making Bucknell University an even safer environment. To share your ideas with us, please visit our station (located next door to Bucknell Student Health on Snake Road down the hill from Trax Hall). We are always available for walk-ins or phone calls.
Public Safety provides information via this website, Facebook and Twitter. You can also sign up to become part of Bucknell's emergency notification system which will notify you via phone, text, etc. if an emergency should arise on or off campus. Working together, we will make the Bucknell University community a safe one for living, learning and playing. Feel free to visit Public Safety and say "Hi" or to grab some important information.
