Although it's not located in the most affluent or nicest of towns, Brandeis is mostly quiet and safe. While the police officers seem incompetent and self righteous at times, they actually do their jobs well. Since there is not much actual crime on campus, the cops mainly hand out parking tickets and break up parties. This safe feeling creates a sense of what is commonly called the “Brandeis Bubble,” which prompts some students to leave their room doors unlocked—the main way that thefts occur. This led to a series of break-ins at the Castle in 2010. Thankfully, the University is slowly updating the security systems of the dorms, moving from key to card access.
The blue-light system, which most colleges employ, ensures that if there is a problem, students are able to get help quickly. The University provides late-night transportation and an escort service for students who feel uncomfortable walking around at night or who need help getting home. And if the provided transportation is not enough, you can call the police, and they will drive you back if you’re out late at the Campus Center or at a friend’s dorm. Overall, this is a very safe and secure campus, as long as you’re smart and use common sense.
