Hours of Operation
Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight; Saturday and Sunday, 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Assistance: Our department provides assistance, as needed, with vehicle lockouts, jump-starts, and escorts.
Lost and Found: The Office of Safety & Security is also responsible for the maintenance of the campus lost and found. Items that are found or turned in are kept in Main Building, Room 116 or in the Commons Building Office of Student Life.
It is recommended that books and valuables be clearly marked by putting a unique number or symbol on an interior page. Such markings help Security and the Bookstore easily identify lost or stolen items.
All daytime students are required to have a parking permit. Student parking is designated by the white lined areas. Yellow lined areas are reserved for campus employees only.
If a car is illegally parked or does not have a permit, it will be ticketed and fines will be assessed. Fines range from 8.00 to $25.00 per occurrence. If the fine is not paid, a hold will be placed on the student's account (e.g., student who has an outstanding fine would not be able register for classes or get transcripts).
Parking permits are free of charge. All fines collected go to the Student Government Association. Note, there is a parking ticket appeals process, and information about this can be obtained from the following website: http://www.de.psu.edu/business/Appeals.html
In accordance with the Campus Safety Act of 1990, a monthly Uniform Crime Report (UCR) is recorded with the Pennsylvania State Police. The UCR report is filled out with the Pennsylvania State Police via its web site.
The same information can be viewed on the Penn State website at http://www.psu.edu/dept/police/. This site lists crime statistics for all Penn State campuses. Penn State Brandywine's information can be viewed at http://www.police.psu.edu/cleryact/.
The Office of Safety and Police Services maintains a good working relationship with the State Police. Its response time is quick, should the need arise. We also maintain communication with the University's Police Services Department.
Violations of University policy that are criminal or suspicious in nature should be promptly reported to Police Services by dialing 610-496-2522. All communications are kept confidential.
