About Us

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Gustavus Adolphus College Community.

The Department of Campus Safety is on-duty 24 hours a day. Our mission is to provide the safest environment possible in which education may be pursued.

Uniformed officers are responsible for residence hall, academic building and grounds security, enforcement of parking and traffic issues, response to health and safety concerns, and supervision of student assistants in both residence halls and academic facilities. Officers are in constant radio communication with the St. Peter Police Department.

Because of the serenity and size of Gustavus Adolphus College, some tend to get the impression that the college community is immune to crime. Unfortunately, crime does not stop at the borders of our campus. People find this out all too well when they become victims of crime.

The responsibility of crime prevention does not rest solely with the campus security department. We need everybody's assistance in making Gustavus Adolphus College a safe and secure place where the community can go about its endeavors in a safe manner. YOU are the most important piece of the crime prevention plan. The success of it depends mainly on you.

The potential for crime does exist at Gustavus Adolphus College, but by practicing good crime prevention habits, the possibility of your becoming a victim substantially reduces.

Have a safe and productive school year.
