LiveSafe Safety App

Champlain College offers a safety app called 'LiveSafe' for all students, staff, and faculty.

Champlain College is committed to providing resources that support a safe campus community. The LiveSafe app is a mobile safety tool that allows users to communicate directly with campus public safety, local law enforcement, and their peers with just a press of a button. Familiar with the Blue Light Emergency System? This is like having a blue light in your hand at all times!

Check out the app features:

Tap the red "CALL Emergency Personnel" button if you need emergency help.

If your location sharing is on while using the app: If you are on campus, the call will go directly to Campus Public Safety (CPS). If you are off campus, the call will go directly to the local emergency police dispatch, no matter where you are, whether it's in Vermont or across the country.

If your location sharing is not on: Your call will go directly to 911.

Have a friend virtually walk, bike, or ride with you to your destination. Once you choose your destination, you can share your route with a friend and they can track your progress. If you do not reach your destination in the estimated timeframe, the app will encourage your friend to check in with you. Watch this video to see the feature in action.
