Health & Safety: I only heard 1 rumor of sexual assault on campus, and it was many years ago. It just doesn't happen here.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on or around campus even when I am walking home at midnight. There is nothing in provo, at least the area around the campus, that would make me at all afraid to be outside even at night time.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus is way safe. The honor code that is required by BYU attracts people who have high moral standards resulting in appropriate conduct between the sexes.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our school is crazy safe, the only school that would be safer is BYU idaho

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police officers are very effective and efficient, and I believe there is a fairly low crime rate compared to other college campuses.

While no campus is perfectly safe, BYU is pretty close. Without the problems brought on by alcohol and drugs,
crime stats stay remarkably low. Granted, a laptop computer left unattended in a hallway may not be there when you get back, but with a little common sense, you can easily go through your BYU career without any major problems (security-wise, at least).

Few campuses in America can boast the safety that BYU does. The Safewalk program is well designed and set up to make sure that students get home from campus safely late at night. BYU also regularly runs awareness programs on everything from water usage to driving safety. The dorms on campus automatically lock at 11 p.m., after which only residents can enter. Fellow students are friendly and look out for one another. It's the BYU way.
