Health and Safety
At Drexel we're proud to be an urban school. But we understand that because we're located in a major metropolitan area we need to be proactive about safety and wellness. See below for some of the resources we have on campus:
Drexel Police Department – The University has a full-time staff of police officers who patrol the campus 24 hours a day. Drexel's police force patrols by foot, on bicycle, and in traditional police cruisers.
DrexelALERT – In the event of a campus emergency, students, faculty, and staff are notified via text and email messaging. Students are required to provide a current cell number to opt into this system.
Emergency Telephones – Walk through campus and you'll notice blue light boxes. Drexel has 62 emergency telephones throughout the campus. If you push the emergency button, Drexel safety personnel are immediately dispensed.
DragonCard – The official identification card for the Drexel community, the DragonCard also provides access to residence halls, classroom buildings, and on-campus events.
Walking Escorts – For late-night walks, students can call Campus Safety for a personal escort.
Drexel Student Health Center – Staffed by Drexel University College of Medicine physicians, the University's health center provides students with health-related needs from allergy shots to women's medicine.
Counseling Center – Mental wellness is important and the Drexel Counseling Center has mental health professionals to help students work through issues. A great resource for all students, the Counseling Center also holds workshops and presentations on issues that may affect new students such as adjusting to college life and stress management.
