Campus Safety and Security

Students enjoy the view at Marymount California University

A Secure Environment in which to Learn and Work

Marymount California University students, staff and visitors can count on the Campus Safety and Security department to provide the highest quality public service. Our one lieutenant, one sergeant, one corporal and 15 officers maintain California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) licenses and remain current in first aid and CPR certifications.

On the main campus, officers are on duty 24 hours a day. If an emergency occurs between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., dial “0” and the receptionist will connect you with security. Officers also may be reached at all times by dialing ext. 300 or (310) 261-6150. The campus safety officer’s desk is located at OS 231.
