The Hollins University Security Department, located in Botetourt Hall, provides 24-hour-a-day security services to the campus community. Security Patrol Officers are linked to the Security Desk by two-way radios. Patrol Officers conduct foot and motor vehicle patrols of the campus grounds, academic and administrative buildings, and residence halls with increased emphasis during the hours of darkness. Patrol Officers also provide additional duties such as personal safety escorts on campus, enforcing all parking regulations, registering student bicycles, and assisting with special events.

Our Security Desk is located within the reception area of the Security Department Headquarters in Botetourt Hall. The Security Desk is staffed and operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the year by Security Dispatchers. The on campus emergency number, 6911, directly connects any campus phone with the Security Desk and should be used when fire, police, or medical response is required or there is a threat to community safety. This number is also published in the university telephone directory and student handbook. For information, escort services, and other non-emergency calls, students and employees should dial the 24-hour non-emergency number, 362-6419.
