The Campus Safety and Security Department at Holy Cross College exists to serve the campus community. Our mission is to support the college's primary objective of building competent minds and compassionate hearts by helping promote, create, and maintain a safe, secure, and enjoyable campus environment for all members of the college community and its guests. We are dedicated and committed to helping the college create a civil place based on Catholic values and common good.

Campus security is lead by officer Greg Runnels a former US Air Force Security Force E5 and an award winning security service officer.

At the request of the students, we have coordinated a partnership between the ND Safe Ride program (called O’SNAP) and the Holy Cross Security team we are calling the HCC-ND Safe Ride Program to provide Holy Cross students with rides to and from the ND campus

This service is available every day that ND is in session from 9:00 pm – 2:00 am, and it operates anywhere on the ND and Holy Cross College campuses

Students can call ND O’SNAP if on the ND campus or Holy Cross Security if on the HCC campus to get a ride to the area on Dorr Road (called Holy Cross Drive on our side of 933) across from the WNDU studio, which is the transfer point between ND and Holy Cross, and then call either ND O’SNAP or Holy Cross Security to get a ride from the transfer point to either ND or Holy Cross College.

To obtain a ride on ND campus, call (574) 631-5555, which is the number for O’SNAP (the ND Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol)

·         ND will provide the student with a ride to the parking gate on Dorr Road (near WNDU studio on what we call Holy Cross Drive on our side of 933)

To obtain a ride from the ND transfer point to the HCC campus, call (574) 239-8312 (HCC Campus Security).

·         A HCC Security officer will meet the student at the transfer point and give them a ride back to the HCC campus

This program is available immediately and for the entire semester.
