Fordham's campus is very safe, which is important when one considers the potential dangers that lie outside those wrought-iron gates. Students are required to flash their school IDs in order to get on campus. Some of the guards are too strict and sometimes give you a hard time about bringing guests onto campus, even though it's perfectly fine to do so. Security cars can be seen driving around campus throughout the day and also at night. Some of the security cars even patrol the campus perimeter, as well. Students generally feel safe while walking around Fordham's campus, with their main safety concerns being more focused on what happens once they leave campus. There's no getting around it; Fordham is not located in a good neighborhood, but the situation could definitely be worse. Students are never afraid to venture off of Fordham's grounds, but they do acknowledge that they need to take certain precautions while outside of the campus gates, especially at night. In their four years at Fordham, most students will never find themselves in dangerous situations.
Students have mixed reactions about the health services at Fordham. Some consider it to be extremely helpful, while others are unsatisfied with the care they receive. Most of the staff members in the health center are family nurse practitioners, so they do know what they're doing, but students still don't report having the best experiences at the health center. They claim it's inconvenient, and some opt to go home for medical care if possible.
