The only entrance to the grounds is through one gated area. Once access to the grounds has been obtained, admittance to the building complex can only be obtained through the main entrance.
The SHMS Security Department, supplemented by a licensed private security agency, is responsible for campus security at the Seminary. This full time staff operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week overseeing the entrance gate as well as the building entrance. SHMS Security officers are also responsible for conducting patrols of the campus buildings and enforcing Seminary policies and regulations. Although their arrest powers are limited, public safety is never compromised since a cooperative relationship with other local, county and state police agencies is maintained.
All vehicles of staff, residence and students are tagged with a parking permit which allows access to a restricted parking area. All visitors are directed to the visitor parking area.
