Emergency Services and Safety

College is a memorable experience for everyone. Together, we can make it a safe one as well.

At Christopher Newport safety is a top priority. Our campus is a community of honor bound by mutual trust and respect, and we are proud to provide students, faculty, staff and guests a safe place to learn, work and visit.

Campus Police

Christopher Newport has a full-time, professionally trained police department, responsible for the safety and welfare of all members of the university community and their guests. The department can be reached day or night at (757) 594-7777.

University Police enforces all state laws and university regulations, and prevents, detects and investigates any criminal activity on campus, 24 hours a day. Officers have the same power and authority as other state and municipal police, with jurisdiction over all property owned, leased and controlled by CNU, as well as adjacent streets and sidewalks. University Police also maintains a mutual aid agreement with the Newport News Police Department.
