Security Department

Hollins University prioritizes campus safety with 14 strategically placed emergency call boxes that connect to the dispatch center. Student residence halls have 24-hour locked exterior doors and a two-lock system, while security officers conduct regular inspections and repairs for enhanced security. Additionally, some facilities have 24/7 video surveillance, and security officers patrol buildings accessible to students at all times.

The campus security station is located in the lobby of Botetourt Hall. It is staffed 24 hours a day throughout the year.
