Campus Safety App

LiveSafe meets student requests for a mobile solution to simplify communication with the university. Users have convenient access to campus resources and services without having to search the internet for them.

The campus safety app is transitioning from Guardian to LiveSafe. The new app provides additional functionality to improve your personal safety and make campus safer. Guardian will continue to function through the transition.
