Hamilton College attracts the nation’s most talented students and scholars. College Hill is truly a special place, yet in today’s society, the Hamilton College Campus Safety Department faces the same challenges as other schools across the country. Campus Safety is committed to providing a safe and secure learning and working environment to every student, faculty member, staff and visitor to Hamilton. Let me assure everyone that your safety and well-being is our highest priority and my primary concern.

Campus Safety’s dedicated and experienced staff is ready to assist the Hamilton community at all times. The security of our campus is a joint effort that involves us all. Your thoughts and ideas are of significant importance to the continuous advancement of our safe learning, working and living environment. By cooperating with each other, exercising good judgment and using basic crime prevention safety measures we can all be assured of the safest possible experience.

This website is designed to inform the Hamilton community of the programs and services Campus Safety will provide, influence and encourage safe behavior and inspire and invite others to partner with us in our mission to reduce criminal activity on and near our campus.

Cooperation is critical to the success of our mission. I ask each of you to make responsible choices, discourage careless behavior, and to promptly report any suspicious activity. It is my pleasure to work with every member of the Hamilton community as we strive to achieve our goals.
