Campus Safety Services

We provide the following services for students and campus guests.


  • LiveSafe Application and Mass Notification System

    LiveSafe is a free smartphone application that provides campus safety information, allows users to text tips in to Public Safety, helps community members stay safe while away from campus, and allows users to receive mass notification alerts from St. Kates when there is an identified hazard on campus. It is imperative that campus community members download LiveSafe onto their iOS or Android devices to use these safety features and to get the alerts.

    Community members who do not have a smartphone can still sign up to receive mass notification alerts from St. Kates, but will be unable to access the other safety features. To sign up to receive alerts, email Public Safety at dps@stkate.edu and let us know you would like to receive these alerts. Include your name, email address, and cell phone number. Once signed up, you will receive email and SMS alerts from St. Kates when a mass notification alert is sent out.

    For more information about LiveSafe, contact Public Safety by phone at 651-690-8888, by email, or click on the links below.


  • Campus Escorts

    Public safety officers are available to provide campus community members and guests with escorts to locations in a perimeter around the Minneapolis or St. Paul Campus by foot or with the public safety vehicle.

    To request an escort, please contact our dispatch center at 651.690.8888 or message us through the LiveSafe app.


  • Vehicle Assistance

    Public Safety provides assistance with vehicle unlocks, jump starts, and tire changing to anyone on campus, or to St. Kate's students, faculty, and staff on or off campus. To request a vehicle assistance service, please call us at 651.690.8888 or message us through the LiveSafe app.

    If unlocks or jump starts fail, we will provide you with a phone number of a locksmith or local mechanic.

    A waiver of liability form must be signed by the individual requesting assistance prior to receiving service.


  • Intercampus Shuttle Van

    The St. Catherine University shuttle van provides free intercampus transportation for students, faculty and staff at St. Catherine University.

    The van runs Monday through Friday during fall and spring semesters. The shuttle does not run during January or summer terms.

    Passengers with accessibility needs should contact us at 651.690.8888 or message us through the LiveSafe app for accommodations.

    There is no cost to use the University shuttle; however, you must have your St. Kate's ID and show it to the driver to board the shuttle—no exceptions.

    The shuttle will only operate and stop at the prescribed times and locations. Due to the possibility of inclement weather, traffic and accidents along the route, the shuttle could be late. If you need to check, please call 651.690.8888 and inquire about the location and next stop.

    Bus Stops

    • St. Kate's (St. Paul campus): Butler Center, south entrance
    • St. Kate's (Minneapolis campus): 25th Avenue South, front courtyard
    • St. Thomas: On Summit Avenue in front of Aquinas Hall

    The shuttle will not make unscheduled stops, or drop you at a gate, as this ensures our shuttle is on time and our riders are safe.
