Providing a safe and secure environment in which to live, learn and work

In the event of an emergency or an impending weather event, official communications will be posted below.

  • Monitoring Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) - December 3, 2020
    As students finish their fall semester studies, thoughts may be turning to the upcoming break and the trip home for a well-deserved rest. Some states are requiring a negative test result within a certain time frame prior to returning to the state to avoid a 14-day quarantine period. Access to COVID-19 testing before travel is available.
In case of a life threatening emergency, call 911 then call Campus Safety, 727.864.8260.

Safety and security services

  • Our Campus Safety team of professional officers is on campus 24×7.
  • Our Threat Assessment Team is constantly at the ready to evaluate credible threats to individuals or the campus community. Representatives include the Director of Outreach Services, the Director of Campus Safety, and the Director of Counseling Services. Each is trained in threat assessment and intervention.
  • Additional safety tips and services for Eckerd faculty, staff and students are available on our internal Campus Safety and Security website.
