Health & Safety: I think safety on campus is great. I always feel safe.Officers are always roaming and there are emergency call boxes all through out campus. Even when something happens we are alerted through the campus wide alert system. Campus is very well light at night time as well which is great for returning home from evening classes.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police are constantly present and willing to help. There is very little crime on campus. The school police provide a safe walk program. The campus also notifies students of potential danger quickly.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I realize that there is crime that happens on campus, but I feel safe as the college alerts us to these things as soon as they happen through email, text, and automated calls.

Health & Safety: I live off campus, but have attended the campus numerous times. There is always campus police patrolling, but it seems that they leave people alone unless they are suspicious. IUPUI utilizes an alert system that goes directly to your cell phone, and I feel this is very beneficial to its students and staff. I feel safe to be on the campus, and congratulate them on a job well done with their security.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: In surrounding areas or around campus it can be unsafe but on campus it is very safe and I feel comfortable walking around at night and alone.

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.
