Personal safety

The goal of this section is to raise awareness of personal safety issues, as well as to provide some tips to help you avoid potentially dangerous situations and settings. 

There are also links to Queen's services relating to human rights, health, and well-being, since being safe also means feeling safe and having access to the resources you need.

For more information about physical safety services on campus, please refer to the On Campus section of the site.

You're already taking responsibility for your personal safety by visiting this website.  Turning the safety tips and techniques below into habits is an important second step.

General Safety:  visit the Campus Security site for safety tips that you can add to your daily routine.
