Enhance Campus Safety and Security

The Complete Campus Security Solution for Universities

We understand you face some of the most complex, wide-ranging security challenges–large open campuses, multiple cities, thousands of students, faculty and staff. As University administrators are expanding areas of responsibility and freezing budgets, safety and security leaders turn to campus security solutions like SafeZone® to act as a force multiplier.

Did You Know?

University public safety and security leaders report a 50% or greater reduction in their response times to incidents, after the deployment and use of SafeZone.


We have three large complex and busy campuses to manage and SafeZone lets us do our job much more effectively. Most importantly it’s helping us to create a safe and welcoming environment, which is essential if we are to continue attracting students from across the globe.

Security Challenges at Universities

Enhancing Your Campus Safety

If you’re looking for more than just a campus safety app, CriticalArc’s unique public safety solution, SafeZone®, is changing the way educational institutions are managing safety. By providing unprecedented situational awareness, the command and control software provides your team with a common operating view so your officers can view their position relative to each other as well as incidents, which enables your team to respond faster and minimise impacts. In addition, the free SafeZone app makes it easy for students and staff to summon help via simple tap on their mobile phone, enhancing the duty of care provided by your organisation.

Attract & Retain Students

University Registrars and Vice Chancellors are under increasing pressure to attract and retain new and existing students, including international students. Since 88% of international students say a strong campus safety and security program influences what university they’ll attend, (and international students represent tens of billions of dollars in economic impact) investing in technology like SafeZone has a high ROI. Several universities have begun to promote their culture of safety and their use of SafeZone as a means to distinguish their institution from competing universities. Registrars understand that when students feel safe, it positively impacts the student experience and university retention rates.

Provide Safety Everywhere

SafeZone offers Safety EverywhereTM, which enables you to manage the safety of your people wherever you have duty of care regardless of geography. This means you can keep your people safe at central and satellite locations, both indoors and outdoors, in remote locations, or when they’re studying/working abroad.

As a result, SafeZone eliminates the need for different solutions to support a variety of environments and protocols, which translates to streamlined implementation, training, and daily operations.

Shortfall of Resources

Given the growth and expansion of Universities, Campus Safety teams are under increasing pressure to absorb incremental responsibilities with little or no increase in staff or budget. When faced with these pressures, college security leaders turn to technology to offset a shortage in resources. Our customers have frequently described SafeZone as a force multiplier that acts an essential component of their Emergency Response Plan. The ability to view the location, availability and role of each officer in the field enables universities to manage their large campuses and estates with small teams, yet still fulfill their duty of care to students, faculty and staff.

Demonstrate Pastoral Care

Astute universities recognise that parents often heavily influence the decision on where their son or daughter will attend University. Given this, universities are now beginning to proactively address parents’ concerns about safety to increase positive perceptions. Several of our customers have cited the positive feedback from parents when they learn about SafeZone. It’s rare that campus security teams can point to an improvement that so clearly demonstrates the university’s commitment to protect its students and staff as part of its overall risk management strategy.

Protecting Students & Staff Overseas

It’s common for universities to have study abroad programs in 100+ countries. In addition, professors and students participate in exchange programs and university officials travel extensively to attend various conferences. As part of their expansion programs, several universities are building campuses in regions outside their main campus. Campus Safety teams are turning to SafeZone to help them create geo-zones around the cities or countries where their students and staff travel,  to enable mass notification, provide visibility to incidents, and meet their duty of care. In fact, SafeZone is operational in over eighty countries worldwide by our customers.
