Safety and Security

At Dominican, we consider safety and security a top priority. Every effort is made to protect the health and welfare our students, faculty, staff and visitors.


Campus Security

Our campus is patrolled 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays, by Barbier Security Group (BSG). The Campus Security cell phone number is 1.415.269.6070, you must dial the entire #. 

Safety Tips

  • Awareness is the most critical factor in the personal safety equation.  If your attention to surroundings is compromised by intoxication, fatigue or preoccupation, you operate at a disadvantage and have a greater potential for being victimized.
  • Don’t walk alone at night and avoid short cuts or isolated areas. Use the buddy system at parties or events.
  • Have your keys ready as you approach your car or residence. If your intuition tells you that you are at risk, try to leave the situation quickly.
  • Report any suspicious activity or concerns to Campus Security.


Campus Security will escort any member of the campus community between buildings or from a building to a car at night. A pre-scheduled escort can be arranged by calling the security cell phone at 1.415.269.6070. Our campus community is strongly encouraged to use this service. 

Emergency vs. Non-Emergency

Always dial 911 (9-911 from a campus landline) for all life-threatening or medical emergencies. For all non-emergency needs, contact Campus Security 24/7 at 1.415.269.6070.
