Is IWU Safe?

College is like a home away from home. Whether you're walking to class or coming back from late-night studying (or partying!), it's important to feel safe on campus.

Indiana Wesleyan University is patroled 24 hours a day by trained security. The IWU campus has emergency telephones or alarms for students to use anytime of day or night.

IWU offers late-night transportation or safety escorts for students. Dorms can only be accessed with secure key cards so that students can feel confident that they are safe in on-campus housing.
