Prioritizing Safety on Full Sail’s Campus
An overview of Full Sail’s commitment to your child’s safety and security while in school.
A university’s commitment to safety and security on campus is an important factor when helping your child decide where they want to pursue their education. At Full Sail, our trained and dedicated Security department is committed to keeping your child safe while the surrounding Winter Park community offers safe, college-friendly living.
24/7 Campus Security
Directed by a former Orange County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Staff, Full Sail’s security team is comprised of over 30 trained and dedicated officers who patrol the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All security team members are Class “D” Security Officers certified by the State of Florida, AED/CPR certified, and adhere to the department’s mission to make Full Sail a safe learning environment where students can focus on their studies without worrying about their safety.
Full Sail’s secure grounds are only accessible to students, faculty, staff, and guests with a valid Full Sail identification card. The campus offers a robust access control system that prevents unauthorized individuals from entering campus facilities and includes 500-plus CCTV cameras throughout the property.
Winter Park & Orange County
Full Sail University prides itself on fostering great relationships with the Winter Park Police Department and Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The security team at Full Sail maintains a direct line with the Sheriff while Deputy Sheriffs patrol the campus daily in conjunction with campus security.
With nearby housing options, Winter Park offers a college-friendly community with local access to grocery stores, museums, libraries, and more. For additional security when heading home from class, the Security department provides safety walking escorts upon request to anyone in the Full Sail community, within Full Sail property limits, 24 hours a day.
Full Sail University’s all-hazard preparedness includes a 24-hour, dedicated emergency hotline that is updated in the event of any emergency alert to assist with keeping the Full Sail community informed and updated. Students and staff have access to the Full Sail One website, which works in conjunction with the Orange County emergency hotline to keep the Full Sail community aware of timely postings regarding all actual or potential crisis/emergency situations.
Resources & Title IX
Full Sail University takes prohibited conduct seriously and, under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, is committed to providing equal access to educational and employment opportunities regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, ancestry, familial status, spousal affiliation, medical condition, military veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by local, state, or federal law.
Our staff and faculty are committed to providing your child with a safe and encouraging space to complete their education. Resources are available to students through the Academic Success Department who work collaboratively with students, faculty, and administration to create a positive environment for development. Academic Advisors can assist with scheduling issues, leaves of absence, and community referrals, and also can act as a contact for parents.
Initiatives like Full Sail’s annual Wellness Fair also help to provide healthy options that promote physical and mental health.
