Health & wellness

At SPU, we care for students by providing accessible health services that address the whole person, enable students to thrive, and result in a healthy campus environment.

Safety & security

SPU’s campus is located within a residential neighborhood, and students generally feel safe walking on and around campus. Students also report feeling safe taking the bus around the city and enjoying all that Seattle has to offer.

However, we are proud to have a skilled team committed to the safety and security of our campus community. The Office of Safety and Security (OSS) manages SPU’s emergency preparedness information, offers 24/7 emergency services, and provides complimentary walking or vehicle escorts for students 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, OSS helps manage parking and commuting options for students.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, SPU created safety protocols to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe.
