Campus Security
The Andover Police are the appropriate authority to report any breach of campus security. We encourage all students to work with school officials and appropriate police agencies to ensure accurate and prompt reporting of any crimes. 668.47(a)(3) For a six year summary of crime statistics and incident breakdown, please inquire within the Office of Financial Aid. Surrounding towns are Tewksbury, Methuen, Lawrence and North Andover.

Emergency Notification System (ENS) MSLAW utilizes the Emergency Notification System through a text messaging system. This system is designed to notify students of emergency conditions, dangerous persons, or other hazards on campus via SMS Text Message, Robo-Call, and via email. Students must complete a registration as soon as possible, as it is the most efficient method of informing our entire student-body and community quickly in case of an emergency situation at MSLAW. Students can register for the Emergency Notification System at mslaw.edu/signup. For more information, contact Mick Coyne.

Campus Law Enforcement
MSLAW is open to the public. Our hours are M-TH 8AM to 10:45PM and Saturdays 8AM to 2PM. Because the building is open to the public, it is very important to keep all valuables within sight. MSLAW is not responsible for any items lost or stolen. We consider the grounds to be safe. However, you must always be aware of your surroundings.

We encourage all students to work with school officials and appropriate police agencies to ensure accurate and prompt reporting of any improper action. In the event of a criminal action or other emergency call 911 immediately. All criminal and immoral actions should be reported to Dean Coyne. For more information regarding campus crime rates, please make all inquiries to the Office of Financial Aid.

Will you be notified about violent offenses?
MSLAW will distribute a security report to current students and employees regarding any violent offenses, that were reported to MSLAW, through direct mail, if these offenses occur. All prospective students and employees will be provided a copy of these reports, upon request. MSLAW will post on the student services bulletin board any criminal offenses, such as stolen laptops, books or vehicle break- ins. Students will be given this summary annually with their Fall and Spring registration in hopes to remind students about community and personal safety and encourage community awareness and prevention.
