Is campus safe?

MIT has its own Police Department on campus to ensure the safety and well-being of the entire MIT community.

“The MIT Police mission is to deliver total quality service to all the members of our community. We focus on a safe academic environment as well as emergency medical service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all year long. We provide these vital services through our EMT certified officers on cruiser, motorcycle, bicycle, and foot patrols. Your needs are our dedication and commitment to service.”

MIT offers shuttles day and late into the night around campus in Cambridge and Boston, and the campus police provide an escort service anytime students need it. Blue light emergency phones are everywhere.

MIT also has a campus warning system, where students can opt-in to receive email/text message/phone alerts of any emergency situations.
