Loyola University New Orleans’s Public Safety Department is a service oriented organization which aims to provide a safe environment conducive to learning, living and working. Public Safety’s offices are located on the main campus in Biever Hall and on the Broadway campus in St. Mary’s Hall.
Public Safety focuses its efforts on the safety of Loyola’s students, faculty, staff and visitors. Public Safety personnel are highly trained, proud professionals dedicated to serving the Loyola Community. Our officers are vigilant in keeping our students, faculty, and staff safe on campus.
Public Safety’s presence on campus is highly visible. University police officers are radio dispatched and can respond almost immediately.
It is the policy of Loyola University that all emergencies or crimes in progress, suspicious circumstances, or conditions that pose a threat to safety or security of community members or guests of the university while on campus should be reported immediately to University Police. This can be done quickly by calling 911 on any campus phone or by using any "blue light" emergency telephones on campus, or in person at University Police offices or directly to an officer in the field. If using any cell phone or off campus phone, please call Loyola University Police at 504-865-3434.
