With a sunny beach location and some of the world's most innovative tech and cinema at our doorstep, the LMU experience is unlike any other.

While Loyola Marymount is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, it is still part of the second largest city in the country. As with any big metropolis, it is wise to stay aware of your surroundings and follow common safety guidelines.

Below is a general checklist to help ensure that your time at LMU is a safe and enriching one.

  • You must sign up for LMU Alert, the university's emergency notification system, before you can register for classes. 
  • Download Rave Guardian in the Apple or Google Play store. LMU's official campus safety app lets you discreetly text Public Safety to report issues, utilize the "Watch Me Walk" feature to get home safely, and more. 
  • Living on your own for the first time? Review our safety tips.
  • Did you know? Public Safety is also responsible for bike registrations, the campus lost and found, and more. Check out the full list of what we do.
