Trent University Campus Security is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

In Durham, a contract security company provides security services to our Thornton Road Campus.  The Security Office is located in the front foyer.  The 24/7 security number is 905-435-5111 and the email address is oshawasecurity@trentu.ca

We regularly patrol campus buildings, pathways, parking lots, and roads, by foot, bicycle, and automobile. Law enforcement, traffic, physical security, assistance, investigations, and emergency services all require 24 hour attention, 365 days of the year.

Comprehensive emergency procedures are in place which include close liaison with the Peterborough Community Police, Durham Regional Police Service, Fire and Ambulance Departments.

Calls for service are prioritized and response time will vary with the location, nature and urgency of the situation. For example: a fire alarm would take priority over someone being locked out of an office.
