4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is a health center that is very convenient to get to. It's located at the center of the campus. The police are there if you need. The school offers a police assisted walk to your car program for those late night classes. The campus also provides emergency posts in case you are in danger run over to the post and an officer will be there immediately.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of much crime this year. I've heard of people being mugged in parking garages in the past though so I am always a little leery to walk alone in the parking garages or early in the morning when it is still dark out. I never see campus security.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I hesitate to walk alone after dark, but I still don't feel like I'm in danger. The campus police are always present, not just for special events. There is also a campus security program that provides escorts to students walking home from class after dark.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't know much about the Heath aspect of IUPUI, but I feel extremely safe on campus. I don't feel threatened at all walking alone at night.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The police are there if you need them, but they usually have to be called. IUPUI is well lit, but it is so close to downtown that there are a lot of people who are not students lingering around late at night. There are a lot of crimes that happen near campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The IUPUI campus is exceptionally safe, considering its urban location. There is a great number of campus police that remains very present during the day and night. Although there have been instances of students’ cars being broken into or muggings, action is taken immediately by campus police. There is going to be crime no matter where you go, but knowing that criminal activity is being closely monitored and taken very seriously is comforting. In the instances when there have been muggings and theft, there are usually signs and sketches of suspects posted right away. The police are very alert, and they help make the students feel safe and protected. Also, the IUPUI Police Web site ( is a great place to learn more about police services such as the 24-hour escorts and rape-defense classes.

The relatively low number of residential living units also contributes to the safety and security of the campus. While there are, of course, drinking- and drug-related crimes reported in residential areas, they are few and far between compared to most traditional campuses that have consistent recurring problems with house parties and underage drinking. This probably helps the campus police focus on more serious crime instead of typical concerns of campus police (drinking, drugs, and hazing). In general, there have been very few major safety concerns at IUPUI—and when there are concerns, action is taken immediately.
