Santa Clara University takes the health and safety of its students extremely seriously.
- Bed BugsSanta Clara University uses an integrated Pest Management Control (PCP) to deal with all pests including bed bugs. An integrated PCP relieves on a combination of practices including reducing hiding spots for bed bugs, heat treatments and pesticides (as needed) to treat bed bugs.
- Crosswalk Safety
During the course of an average day at Santa Clara University there may be as many 10,000 people traveling on or near campus - in cars, motorcycles, mopeds, bicycles, skateboards, scooters or on foot. This makes the main campus and surrounding area potentially hazardous if you do not pay attention.
- Driving at Night
Nighttime driving only accounts for 25% of all driving and there is usually significantly less traffic during these hours. However, driving at night is more of a challenge than many people think. It is also more dangerous:
- Traffic death rates are three times greater at night than during the day
- 55% of all driving fatalities occur after dark
- 62% of pedestrian fatalities occur at night
Despite these figures, many of us are not aware of the unique hazards or special precautions associated with night driving.
- Residence Hall SafetyThere are many things you can do to protect yourself and others in a Residential Learning Community. (RLC) at Santa Clara University.
- Prohibited Items
Due to the extreme dangers presented by fire hazards in student rooms, the University will continually monitor all living areas through visits by the Residence Life Staff.
