Safety and Community Standards

Campus Safety

The safety and security of all members of the Bay State College community is of the utmost importance to us. The Student Affairs team provides 24/7 emergency on-call coverage to all students and sponsors several programs throughout the year aimed at increasing student awareness of ways to be safe in the city.

Bay State complies with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act by compiling statistics on the crime rate in and around our campus, and by routinely conducting evaluations of campus-wide emergency preparedness.

We are located in one of the safest neighborhoods in Boston. For more information on crime in our area last year, click here

Community Standards

In addition to providing a quality education, Bay State College is committed to developing socially and ethically aware citizens. As members of the Bay State community, all students have certain rights, as well as a responsibility to behave in an appropriate manner, consistent with the mission of the College and the policies listed throughout the Student Handbook.

Student ID Cards

All incoming students studying on-ground will receive a Bay State College Student ID Card, free-of-charge, at New Student Orientation. Students should carry this ID with them at all times while on campus to access academic buildings, residence halls, and social spaces such as the gym and the Underground lounge. Students can also use their IDs at print kiosks and copy machines around campus.

Students who have lost or misplaced their ID cards can request a replacement card for a fee by clicking here

Emergency Notification System

Bay State College has an Emergency Notification System which will send alert messages to all members of the community in the event of an emergency. Students will automatically receive these alerts via their Bay State College email accounts. However, all members of the community are strongly encouraged to log-in to the system and register to receive notices via text or cell phone alerts. Students should also update their contact information in the system if it has changed.
