About

The Public Safety Department welcomes you to Naugatuck Valley Community College. We are a law enforcement/public safety agency responsible for the enforcement of campus rules and regulations and local, state and federal Laws. All NVCC Police Officers are trained at the Connecticut Police Academy and derive their powers of arrest from the Commissioner of Public Safety.

Our Mission

The Public Safety Department at NVCC provides the campus community with proactive, professional policing services. As an integral link in the learning environment the Department responds to the changing needs of the college by stressing prevention above response, planning above reaction and service to all.

Parking Information

Parking Information

Specific parking areas are designated for visitors, students, faculty and staff.

Students are not required to obtain parking decals or permits. Students may park on a first-come, first served basis in the East or West lots, except in those areas designated:

  • reserved
  • fire lanes
  • grass areas
  • faculty and staff
  • visitors
  • handicapped.

Some parking areas may be restricted by a sign on special occasions. The speed limit in the parking areas and driveways is 15 mph.

The lack of parking space does not permit the violation of a parking regulation. Vehicles may be towed if they are in violation of the parking regulations without notice to the owner. The College does not assume responsibility for any motor vehicle, parked or in motion, or its contents.

Parking violations are as follows:

$10.00 Penalty

  • parking beyond established time

  • restricted parking (no permit/improper permit)
  • parking in police space/state vehicle/reserved space

Weather Closings/Alerts

Weather Closings

Naugatuck Valley Community College and the NVCC Danbury Campus may delay, close early or cancel all activities and classes when our region is impacted by inclement weather. 

Depending on the weather event's start time, a decision will be announced by 6 am whether or not to delay or cancel. One decision will be made for both the Waterbury and Danbury campuses.

Once that decision is made, a text message will be sent to all subscribers of myCommNet Alert with instructions on when to return to campus. If you are not currently subscribed to myCommNet Alert, click the link above to sign up. 

The College will also make every effort to post notices on the television, at CTWeather.com, and on the NVCC Information Line, which can be reached at 203-575-8000. However, myCommNet Alert is the preferred and most accurate communications method. 

* During a delay, classes will resume their normal schedule beginning at the appointed opening time for that day. For example, if the College opens at 9:30 am, you should report to your 9:30 am class.
