The Office of Residence Life and the Spring Hill College Community are committed to providing students with a safe environment that is conducive to personal growth and learning. To accomplish this, the Office of Residence Life partners closely with the Department of Public Safety to ensure the safety of our students.
All residence halls on campus are secure and external doors are locked 24 hours a day. Access to residence halls are restricted to students assigned to each building and authorized personnel. The campus as a whole, also restricts access to non-Spring Hill Students and authorized personnel after 10 p.m., limiting the entrances to campus to a singular access point from the Old Shell Road entrance.
Reaching the Department of Public Safety
The Department of Public Safety can be reached at 251-380-4000 during normal business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday). If you experience an after hours emergency, a Public Safety dispatcher can be reached at 251-380-4444.
Emergency Services and Protocols
Should there be a weather related or other emergency on campus, the Office of Residence Life has created an extensive Emergency Services and Protocol plan to ensure the safety of students. In the event of an emergency, students will be notified and provided instructions in a timely manner.
Students are encouraged to register for approved Spring Hill College emergency communications via text message and email through the RAVE System.
