On behalf of the men and women of the Department of Public Safety, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Rosemont College. I want to assure you that the Department of Public Safety will be working around the clock to maintain a safe atmosphere for faculty, staff, students, and visitors alike. We believe that safety is a shared responsibility and ask that you join us in making our campus, as well as our local community, a safe and joyful place.

The report also includes a Fire Safety Report for on-campus student housing and institutional policies concerning campus security, such as sexual assault, emergency response and other matters. You can obtain a paper copy of this report by contacting the Director of Public Safety, 1400 Montgomery Ave, Rosemont, PA 19010 or by accessing the following web site: 

2018 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the Department of Public Safety, officials designated as Campus Security Authorities, Lower Merion Police Department and the Philadelphia Police Department.

Criminal incidents, fires, emergencies or any type of suspicious activity on campus or in the area adjacent to the College should be promptly reported to the Department of Public Safety by dialing 2555 from any campus phone or 610-527-1038 from any other phone. Public Safety Officers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

When calling, stay calm and carefully explain the problem and location to the officer. Do not hang up until told to do so. Keep calm and keep others calm.

A Public Safety Officer is immediately dispatched to the location where he or she will evaluate the situation and contact the necessary authorities. Public Safety Officers will assist crime victims by contacting the appropriate police/service agency, providing transportation, and other reasonable services to encourage accurate and prompt reporting of criminal offenses. All victims of crime are encouraged to file a report with the local police departments.


The purpose of the Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is to establish, through planning sessions, discussions, and lessons learned, a set of emergency procedures to assist Rosemont College in managing and responding to any emergency that may arise.
