Campus safety options provide assistance in many situations


Across campus, many supports and services are available to Mount Royal University students — providing immediate information and help in an emergency, helping students get around late at night and assisting during difficult situations.

Help during emergencies, or when you just need information

New 360-degree, high-resolution cameras were installed across campus last year, and help stations — called Code Blues — can be found in nine different outdoor locations. The new stations include cameras and two-way communication capabilities to connect you directly to Security Services.

Security Services available 24/7

Security Services, located at West Gate (X200), can be reached around the clock for emergencies at 403.440.5900, for non-emergencies at 403.440.6897 and through email at security@mtroyal.ca. Emergency phones and Code Blue stations are also located throughout campus and connect directly to Security Services.

MRU Now safety app offers real-time help and information

The MRU Now safety app alerts users to any safety concerns on campus and includes quick links for immediate help or to report a situation. It has features like “friend walk,” which lets users share their location with someone who can then follow them in real time as they make their way across campus to their destination. MRU Now is available for download at the App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android.

The app also gives quick access to campus maps, transit and parking maps, plus health and wellness information.


MRU Now is the official mobile safety app of Mount Royal University.


SAFEWALK program available around the clock

In addition to “friend walk” available on MRU Now, Security staff operate Safewalk to escort students to their car, bus stop or Residence any time of day or night. Go to the Campus Security office at West Gate, or call Security at 403.440.6897 from a cell phone or one of the information phones or Code Blue stations on campus.

Help for dating, domestic and sexual violence

Operated through Campus Equity and Meaningful Inclusion provides specialized, trauma-informed support to Mount Royal students. Students can book time with an advocate for confidential information, support, safety planning and more.

Wellness Services available for health and well-being

Wellness Services offers a range of supports for students’ physical and mental health including medical services. In a medical emergency, call 911 and then Security Services at 403.440.5900.
