Campus Safety and Transportation Services

Welcome to the Department of Campus Safety and Transportation Services. We are committed to maintaining a safe and pleasant educational environment for all Beacon College students, faculty, staff, alumni, families and guests on campus.

Reported crime at Beacon College is extremely low, and yet it is important for us all to realize that we are not immune from criminal activity. The Office of Campus Safety has a partnership with the Leesburg Police Department to ensure your safety. Our officers provide a full range of services including routine patrols of the campus, parking enforcement, safety inspections, and security escorts after hours. Everyone is encouraged to report incidents of suspicious activity to Campus Safety no matter how trivial it might seem. Our staff will investigate these incidents and take whatever action is deemed necessary. The Campus Safety Officer on duty may be reached 24 hours a day at 352-638-9799.

I invite you all to explore our pages and visit with us personally in the Campus Safety and Transportation office, located in Burbank Hall on East Main Street.
