Campus Safety

A Haven for Higher Learning

Vermont is one of the safest states in the nation, and our campuses in Lyndon and Johnson are peaceful havens for collaboration, learning, growth, and success. Our Public Safety departments take pride in working with our campus and local communities to ensure that Northern Vermont University remains a safe and productive environment for higher learning.

Campus Safety Annual Report

In compliance with federal guidelines, NVU publishes an annual fire and safety report on October 1, which includes statistics for the previous three years about reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by NVU, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from each campus. This report also includes policies concerning campus security. You can view the report below.
