An Extra Layer of Security

The LiveSafe app connects students to an array of resources and allows them to make quick and easy reports to campus security to increase the safety of everyone on campus.

August 2016—Whether students notice a light has gone out or want someone to watch them walk back to their dorm, Santa Fe University of Art and Design now has a solution: LiveSafe, an app that may be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Our goal is to ensure that all students feel safe on our campus, have access to the resources they need, and are able to quickly and easily report a safety concern.

In LiveSafe, students, alumni, and campus visitors may:

  • Access resources: Find phone numbers, training, emergency procedures, and report tips.
  • Share concerns with campus security: Submit information about a light outage, unusual activity, or any other concern by submitting text, a photo, video, or audio file. Users have the option to do this anonymously.
  • See what’s around you: The Safety Map shows all of the campus buildings, including areas of interest, your location, and designated safety areas.
  • Request help in an emergency: Not only can you quickly access and connect to emergency phone numbers within the app, you may also choose who to contact, whether is it campus security or 911.
  • Request a Safe Walk: Want someone to watch you as you walk from a far-flung campus building back to your dorm? Ask a fellow student, family member, or friend to “watch you” walk from point A to B on the map within LiveSafe.

At the start of the fall semester, campus security will host workshops to educate everyone on campus about LiveSafe, and ensure your questions are answered. By offering the LiveSafe app, our goal as a campus community is to enhance everyone’s overall sense of safety and quality of campus life.
