The Boston Conservatory rated safest campus in Massachusetts! 

The safety and security of our students is our number one priority.  

The Boston Conservatory engages the services of Longwood Security Services, Inc. to provide 24-hour campus safety and security services.  The director, operations manager, and patrol supervisors are licensed by the Boston Police Department as special officers, giving them full law-enforcement and arrest authority in and on all property owned or controlled by The Boston Conservatory. 

A public safety officer is stationed in 8 The Fenway from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Public safety officers also make regularly scheduled rounds throughout the campus.  All public safety personnel receive on-going training in crime prevention, fire safety, non-violent crisis intervention, emergency procedures, and other security and safety-related areas. All personnel are in constant two-way radio contact with the patrol supervisor.  The Department of Public Safety maintains close working relationships with Boston police and fire departments and with appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies.

In addition, the majority of campus buildings are equipped with alarm, intercom, ID-card access and closed-circuit video systems. Emergency call boxes are located at 10 different locations on campus and in the vicinity.  These devices enhance the Conservatory's ability to protect the people who work, study and rehearse in these buildings while maintaining the critical balance between security of the facility and user convenience.
