Any crime on campus tends to be petty, involving loss of or damage to belongings. It is extremely rare to hear about a threat to anyone’s physical well being. Still, Public Safety is a very visible presence on campus. Officers are generally very friendly, and the department is well stocked with accomplishments. This is one place where you do not have to worry about being alone at night, which gives much more flexibility in deciding whether or not you’d like to study in the library until midnight. Dorm security is also very good. You can’t get into any of the residence halls without your OneCard (student ID). However, you should still be careful to check who’s behind you before you open the door for them.
Students generally leave their doors unlocked despite a recent spike in thefts on campus, which Public Safety calls “crimes of opportunity”. Students should take extra care and lock their doors during large social events, like Las Vegas Night, when many people on campus are not members of the community and may not be respectful of the honor code. Overall, Mount Holyoke maintains a very trusting atmosphere, regardless of minor burglaries.
