Safety and Security

At Furman, you'll find a sense of community. We provide housing for all four years on campus, and look out for each other. That helps create a safe environment.

Our gated campus is located in one of Greenville's safest areas, and is patrolled by a force of state-certified officers. This unit is separate from, but operates in cooperation with, the Greenville County Sheriff's Department. If you need to report an incident or request an escort, our police officers are available 24 hours a day. You can immediately contact them through one of our emergency call boxes, which are scattered across our residential campus.

In campus-wide emergencies, Furman can connect quickly with its community through its campus alert system. You'll receive our alerts through email as well as text and voice messages. More importantly, our system keeps you in the loop and minimizes misinformation.
