Safety and Security
Chicago is our campus. Home to renowned cultural institutions, parks, shopping districts, gallery districts, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), Chicago provides a comprehensive learning experience for our students. Because we are an urban campus, your safety and security is of the utmost consideration at SAIC. The Campus Security department of the school is dedicated to protecting the learning environment of each student and responding quickly and responsibly to any situation that may jeopardize their well-being. Campus Security is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
This website offers helpful information regarding safety tips, emergency information, SAIC's campus security policy and crime statistics, and general contact information. We hope that you take a moment to review this information. The information provided on our website is for all members of the SAIC community. Security is everyone’s concern. We depend on our students, faculty, staff, and guests to take precautions that are designed to reduce the likelihood of falling victim to crime. We encourage our students, faculty, staff, and guests to take responsibility for their security and the security of others by using good judgment, reporting suspicious behavior on the part of people they don’t know, and avoiding behaviors that might put them at risk.
We are here to address the concerns of all SAIC community members including parents. Please do not hesitate to call us if you are in need or have questions.
