Security tips

While NorQuest strives to provide a safe and secure environment, it is important not to take our own safety and security for granted. We encourage our students, staff, and faculty to be aware of their surroundings and practice good personal safety and security.

Personal safety tips:

  • Always be aware of your surroundings (eg. bus schedules, building hours of operation, location of security personnel, etc.).
  • Stay within well-lit areas.
  • Secure vehicles and personal belongings.
  • Do not leave personal belongings unattended.
  • Familiarize yourself with NorQuest College emergency procedures, fire evacuation routes, and contact information.
