Most students enjoy the convenience of being able to roll out of bed at 8:45 AM for their 9 o'clock class.

Westminster College employs Campus Patrol officers to ensure campus safety. They patrol the campus 24/7 by foot and patrol car. Trained staff (Resident Advisors and Professional Staff) are located in each residential area to help with concerns or issues that arise. Each residence hall or apartment entrance is staffed by a student worker and is locked and accessible only to resident students.
