Mission Statement

The goal of King's College is to educate the student for the present and the future. In keeping with this goal, the Campus Security and Safety Department endeavors to provide a safe campus environment. Security Services will assist students in becoming active participants in the security of their campus. This is done with a motivated staff of men and women dedicated to being a positive resource to the campus community. The staff strives to update training and work together with other departments within the college to meet the needs of a dynamic society.

Student Security and Safety

Everyone is a potential victim of crime. The security services and the Office of Residence Life and Commuter Life offers some precautions that students can take to help you from becoming a victim. Residence Halls are locked and front desk security is available 24 hours a day at certain residence halls. An escort service and outdoor emergency phones are located throughout the campus.


Cash or check payment for the parking fee will be accepted at the Security Office. Please fill out the Resident Vehicle Registration Form or Commuter Vehicle Registration Form along with your cash or check payment. To make a payment online, use the link below. Please note, there will be a service fee included when paying online. Details on the service fee can be found here.

In case of an emergency, you can contact a security officer on duty by calling "0" from any on-campus extension, activate an emergency call box, go to the college Switchboard located in D. Leonard Corgan Library or dial "911" for Wilkes-Barre City Police or Fire response.
