Student Safety

Your student's safety is of utmost concern to us at Park University. And, you’ll be glad to know that our campus is very safe. The Parkville campus has a “small-town” feel, where people look out for one another and the campus community as a whole.

Residence Halls

If your son or daughter is living on campus (and we hope they are!), you are aware that access to the residence halls is limited to only residential students. Students must use their Park IDs to enter the building. There are also security cameras at the building entrances and on each floor - which are viewed by Campus Safety staff on a 24-hour basis. For additional information about Residence Life, please check the Campus Housing website or call Residence Life (816)584-7400.

Escort Service, Registration of Property, Personal Safety, and More

The Campus Safetyy department is open 24 hours a day, every day, to provide safety and assistance to the campus community. On their website, you can learn about the escort service available to your students, if they’d prefer to have a staff person walk them to class, their car, or their residence hall. The website also includes tips and information about personal safety. We also encourage students to utilize the Registration of Property forms to register the specific information about their laptop computer, camera, or other personal equipment. Their website also includes the campus crime report, so you can see for yourself just how safe the Parkville campus is! Please visit the Campus Safety website for information about the many different personal safety programs and services available or call Campus Safety staff at: (816)584-6444.
