The safety of our students, faculty and guests is a top priority at Piedmont International University. We have an on-site security team committed to maintaining safety and a track record demonstrating that PIU is a safe campus. Like many universities, Piedmont International University utilizes a text emergency notification system that is available free to all students, faculty and staff. designed to inform of an incident or possible threat on campus with instructions of what to do. All buildings on campus are equipped with a keyless entry that is requires a programmed swipe card for entry. In the Residence Halls each room is privately keyed.
