The office maintains strong working relationships with other University offices as well as with local police and fire departments. Through training materials and presentations, the office highlights the importance of education as the key element in crime prevention.

Vehicle Registration and Parking

Eligible full-time and part-time students, faculty and staff intending to have a vehicle on campus must have it registered each academic year by logging into your MySalve account and then into MyInformation to fill out your On-Line Vehicle Registration Form. A decal for on-campus parking is issued and a service fee is charged.  Students may pick up decals at the Office of Safety and Security in Tobin Hall. All campus parking areas are clearly posted. Fines are levied on those who do not observe parking regulations. The Office of Safety and Security has the authority to tow, at the owner’s expense, any vehicle on University property that violates parking signs and regulations.


The SALVE card serves as an identification card for members of the Salve Regina University community and can grant access to a multitude of services. Students are required to carry their student identification card with them at all times. The cards can be used to check materials out of the library, gain access to the library’s special reference databases, and utilize the Sullivan Fitness Center. Money can be deposited on the card to be used for the following: Salve Regina University Bookstore purchases, campus soda and snack machines, Global Café, Jazzman Café, and Starbucks, library copiers, Sullivan Fitness Center, McKillop Library Mail Services, and Copy Center.

Salve Regina University identification cards are available to all new students at the time of initial enrollment by the Office of Safety and Security. Identification cards provide access to the University computer laboratories, the McKillop Library, the cafeteria and to other specific buildings, functions or events. Identification cards should be carried at all times, since students may be asked to present them to University officials upon request. They are to be retained until graduation or departure from the University. If lost or stolen, cards should be reported immediately to the Office of Safety and Security. A $25 replacement fee will be charged.
