Security Tips

Safety and security on campus is an important issue for everyone who comes to Western University of Health Sciences. The campus is located in the heart of downtown Pomona, a busy district of business, restaurants, and nightclubs.

We boast a record of few crimes and is very safe. The university has contracted with Imperial Security Services to ensure that safety record. Uniformed officers are visible throughout the day and into the evening hours. They also patrol the parking lots in marked vehicles every day that the university buildings are open.

You can help continue our history of safety by taking these steps:

After hours:

All parking is free and open to everyone after 5:00 pm. If you are staying late, move your car closer to the building you will be in.
