Threat of personal violence to yourself or others
Memorial University strives to create a safe and respectful environment for all members of its community. Threats of any nature will not be tolerated.
Employees: If your safety is threatened by anyone while you are on campus or working in any capacity for Memorial University, report the threat to your supervisor/department head as soon as possible. If warranted, request assistance from Campus Enforcement and Patrol (CEP) by calling 4100. CEP will contact police if necessary. If you believe you or someone else is in immediate danger, call 9-911.
Students: If your safety is threatened by anyone while you are on campus, report the threat to Campus Enforcement and Patrol (CEP) by calling 4100. CEP will respond and/or contact police if necessary. If you believe you or someone else is in immediate danger, call 9-911.
Emergency calls to Campus Enforcement and Patrol, 4100, can be made from any pay phone on campus. There is no charge for these calls. Dialing instructions are included on each pay phone.
Video surveillance cameras are placed throughout the university’s campuses to help CEP officers identify suspicious activity and respond.
Emergency telephones have been installed in the tunnels on the St. John's campus. Once a person places a call to report an emergency, a blue light above the phone will begin flashing to attract attention to their location and security cameras will be focussed on that spot until a patrol arrives.
In addition, direct-access emergency phones are located near the main entrance to the Aquarena, in parking lot 27 (coin-operated, gated area near Utilities Annex), near the main lobby of the Arts and Administration Building, and near the MUNSU Childcare Centre.
In addition to the services of CEP, on the St. John’s campus Memorial's undergraduate student union, MUNSU, offers a program called WalkSafe/SafeDrive, which gives people a safe way to get home from classes or the library after dark.
