Health and Safety
Campus Living & Learning understands the growing importance of safety issues to both Baylor students and parents. The immediate physical safety and security of resident students, guests, staff, and other customers is our most imperative and basic concern.

SSEOs move freely in and around residential communities between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. seven days a week interacting and building relationships with students, confronting and reporting unacceptable behavior, checking that all exit doors are secure, reporting lighting and other safety issues, and alerting the Baylor Police Department about any suspicious behavior. Carrying cell phones, SSEOs are available throughout each night and are a significant resource for resident students. Click here for SSEO contact information.
