Welcome to the Santa Fe University of Art and Design department of Safety and Security.
The security department is always open, even during holiday breaks. You can reach us 24 hours at 1-505-424-5000.
The safety and security of all members of our Santa Fe University of Art and Design community is the responsibility not only of this department, but of the entire campus as a whole. We can all take part, whether by increasing awareness of safe practices and our surroundings or by simple application of common sense. This page is your resource for 24-hour contact information for your security team, monthly safety and security tips, and the occasional alert in the event of an emergent condition on campus.
It is the mission of Santa Fe University of Art and Design Department of Safety and Security to work diligently to provide a safe and secure environment in which to learn, work, and live while respecting the rights and dignity of each member of the university community. We will focus on continuous improvement in order to provide top-quality service in an ethical, courteous, and professional manner.
This department is composed of a full-time director of safety and security, overseeing 24-hour physical security provided by Pro-Sec Security. The campus security office can be found in the round building between Driscoll Fitness Center and Alexis Hall. (Next to the outdoor tennis courts)
Our security staff care about your safety and our campus. Working hand-in-hand with all members of our unique community, and in conjunction with the departments of
Housing/Residential and Student Life, we strive to ensure a safe environment for growth is provided for all through awareness, consideration of others, and enforcement of Santa Fe University of Art and Design policy. Should you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for improvement—or just find yourself in need of someone to talk to—please don't hesitate to call or visit us, day or night. Our door is always open.
Santa Fe University of Art and Design utilizes an Emergency Notification System called Blackboard Connect. This system will allow you to receive timely notification should an emergency occur on campus. This system is voluntary, although we strongly encourage everyone to sign up so that you can be notified in case of an emergency. Standard charges for incoming calls and text messages apply (Please check with your provider if you have questions concerning those charges).

Any crime committed on Santa Fe University of Art and Design premises should be promptly reported to Campus Security who may, in turn, report the crime to the appropriate municipal authorities.
In the event of a serious crime or incident on campus that poses a danger to students, crime watch notices may be posted around the campus and appropriate notices sent through electronic and other means. All members of our community are encouraged to review such information so that steps can be taken to minimize their exposure to risks.
The entire community can help keep campus crime to a minimum. For safety reasons, all main residence hall doors are kept locked. Do not prop open any locked door, do not allow others to follow you in to a locked building, and do not give your key to friends.
Report suspicious persons to Campus Security to ensure the safety of all members of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design community.
In an effort to assist with campus crime prevention, speakers are available to present workshops on personal safety, sexual assault, and other campus security/personal safety topics. Contact the Director of Campus Security, Peter Romero (505) 473-6328 for more information on speakers or workshops.
