Student Affairs – Safety and Security

The Office of Safety and Security provides 24-hour service and protection to the Bowdoin community. Committed to ensuring the safest possible campus environment, the office's primary focus is the health and safety of the student body. The campus is patrolled by uniformed officers in vehicles, on foot, and on bicycle. The 24-hour communications center answers emergency and routine service calls and monitors an extensive network of security cameras and life safety alarm systems. The Bowdoin Shuttle operates during peak evening hours, seven days a week, transporting students to and from destinations within a one-mile radius of campus. Additionally, officers monitor visitors and operations at the Museum of Art. Security staff can be reached at:

Emergencies - Ext. 3500 or 725-3500

Business - Ext. 3458 or 725-3458
