Campus safety

Our campus safety department works hard to ensure that Lynn continues to be a safe place for you to live and learn. Though our campus security officers are on guard 24 hours a day, we continue to maintain cooperative relationships with the City of Boca Raton Police Department, Palm Beach Sheriff's Office and Florida State Police. 

The Lynn University campus is kept secure with a 24-hour security force and three monitored entrances. Everyone entering campus must have a campus sticker, and all guests visiting campus must be registered in advance.

Parking and driving rules

All students are permitted to drive and park their car on campus. Just visit the Security Shack to register your vehicle and pick up a free campus parking sticker. There are several parking lots around campus that are designated for student use.

If you find yourself in need of a safe ride home, Safe Ride is available free of charge Wednesday through Saturday from 11 p.m. until 3 a.m. Safe Ride will pick you up from anywhere within a 10-mile radius of Lynn University and will take you back to campus. Contact Safe Ride at 1-800-675-6349.

Lightning strike precautions

Although Florida is the lightning capital of the world, the odds of actually being struck by lightning in any given year are just 1 in 700,000. The best way to avoid a lightning strike is to stay indoors during lightning activity. To help our students stay safe, we've implemented a system that detects lightning in the surrounding areas and blasts a series of short horns to warn the community to seek shelter.
