You are never alone

Okanagan College encourages those who may find themselves in a potentially violent relationship to share this information with Security Services, so in a time of crisis or immediate threat of violence, security can better respond and offer assistance or protection. Assistance and support can be provided in many ways from counselling and direction to security escort or providing a safe room on campus.

Special procedures have also been developed in the event of lethal aggression on campus and bomb threats.
