At King’s we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming learning environment on campus. Here are some resources related to campus safety.
Occasionally, King’s will need to close due to inclement weather or for other reasons. If this occurs, we will broadcast this information as widely as possible:
Dalhousie University offers an integrated messaging system to King’s students that broadcasts important messages regarding campus hazards ( e.g. spill, fire, accident, etc. ), significant campus closures ( e.g. severe weather, utility outage, etc. ), or other unpredictable events that might affect large groups.
Sign up at Dal Alert to receive text and web alerts.
King’s students can also download the DalSAFE app for quick and easy access to Dalhousie security services and more.
The University of King’s College’s Occupational Health and Safety Policy, as well as the Health and Safety Program, are annually reviewed by the Occupational Health & Safety Committee, which provides recommendations for changes, when appropriate. Among other tasks, the committee also responds to health and safety concerns raised by members of the college, and recommends to the Property, Grounds and Safety Committee alterations to physical facilities or work practices, as it deems necessary or advisable.
