Campus Safety & Support Resources

Naugatuck Valley Community College is committed to providing a safe and encouraging intellectual environment for students and community members, with a focus on prevention and education that extends beyond the classroom.

The College offers a range of holistic services for special groups of students like those returning to college after military service, those with learning and/or physical disabilities, those from low-income households and first generation college students. We also host a number of clubs and associations whose members self-identify based on special interests, areas of study, religion, race and gender.

Campus safety 

In order to facilitate a culture of openness and shared diversity, the College relies on a well-staffed Public Safety Department to monitor the campus environment and respond to potentially harmful activities. The Department supplies an annual campus crime report and provides one of multiple venues for students to report incidents on campus.
