At the University of Valley Forge (UVF), we understand that your safety is your number one priority and that’s why we make it ours. Campus Security is on duty 24 hours a day to provide an immediate response to all emergencies and to contact appropriate emergency-response personnel if ever needed. There is a campus-wide Emergency Notification System (ENS), ID card access locks for residence halls, and surveillance cameras in strategic areas around campus.
UVF’s Campus Security has a close working relationship with PA State Police and Schuylkill Township Police Department. Staff and faculty are trained on active shooter response. UVF also has a Security Student Advisory Committee that provides input and suggestions from students to continue to keep UVF safe and secure.
Students may park in spaces designated “General/Student Parking.” All students with vehicles must obtain a parking permit. To obtain a permit, the student must provide the Student Life Office with a completed Vehicle Registration Form. Visitors staying on campus overnight or for more than one day must obtain a visitor’s parking permit for their vehicle by registering with the RA of the residence hall in which they will be staying. Overnight guests with visitor’s permits can park in “General/Student Parking.” Vehicles without a permit are subject to fines and towing at the owner’s expense.
