Fanshawe College believes your safety comes first, which is why we have a dedicated team of security professionals here just for you. We are committed to providing you a safe, healthy and comfortable learning environment. Our security personnel are focused on the timely delivery of quality security services to all people within our community. We treat everyone with the utmost respect, dignity, sensitivity and absolute fairness. We work closely with the community to ensure an effective and efficient service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


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 each situation. Proactive patrols of the campus are intended to deter criminal or inappropriate activity as well as identify 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.

Safe Walk

We offer Security escorts to any location at the London Campus (1001 Fanshawe College Blvd., London), including to your vehicle or bus stop. We will assist with your safe departure from campus. This service is free and is available 24/7/365.

Student Auxiliary Program

The Student Auxiliary Program has been active since 2011 and is the first of its kind in Canada. Campus Security Services generally deploy between six and eight Auxiliary Volunteers throughout the academic year, who conduct general and community patrol in addition to providing valuable community service. Student Auxiliary volunteers receive training and work in uniform alongside our Special Constables and the rest of the security team in a variety of roles. Current students can learn more and apply to join the Student Auxiliary Program on MyFanshawe.

Additional campus services

The Campus Security Services team provides a number of services to the Fanshawe College community including: general assistance, incident response, law enforcement, investigation, emergency communications and more.
