Northeastern University partners with several local businesses to provide the Safe Haven program. The program is intended to give members of our community places to seek assistance in case of emergency. The area merchants that are part of the program have stickers posted in their windows identifying them as Safe Haven locations. In an emergency, these businesses will provide a safe space where those in need of assistance may contact police and wait until assistance arrives. Northeastern’s residence halls are considered Safe Haven locations as well, and Security Desk Attendants can provide assistance. In addition, Boston Fire Department stations and Boston Police Department precincts are open 24 hours a day and are available to assist in an emergency.
