About Campus Security

We are your partners in making your experience at Fanshawe a safe and productive one.  As experienced, trained security professionals with diverse backgrounds we are your resource in reducing or eliminating any disruption in the normal operation and learning environment of the college and your life on campus.

The college employs both Special Constables and contract security personnel to provide a balanced approach to campus protection. While our focus is on preventing crime and disruption, the community counts on us to react appropriately to the situation. Pro-active patrols of the campus are intended to act as a deterrent to criminal or inappropriate activity as well as a means of identifying potentially dangerous or unsafe conditions.

We are also committed to supporting you as an active partner in our efforts to make the campus as safe as possible. With this in mind, we provide a wide variety of training and educational opportunities so you can learn how to effectively protect yourself and your property. We have developed a number of programs designed to enhance your safety and security.

Fanshawe Stay Safe App

Fanshawe College has launched a new Stay Safe app. The app is available free for Android and iOS.
