3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My roommate was robbed and the police said they'd take action but it appears as though nothing was done.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Law School is not on UALR campus, it is across the city. Additionally, it is located by McMath Park which has been a crime scene several times since I've begun school there.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus police are not very visible and there are parts of the campus and inside of buildings that are very poorly lit, which is why I do not feel comfortable taking night classes.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You never see any policeman, when you do it's not campus police, it's the regular police of the county chasing someone who went on campus. They do have locks on doors, but otherwise I feel pretty unsafe. We need more security.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't had any issues yet.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Security at the University is pretty good, and public safety officers have a strong presence on campus. While walking to and from class, students will probably see at least one security guard patrolling either in a car or on foot. Some patrol officers even take classes with the students.

Probably the safest time at the University is during the day, since that’s when most students are on campus. Of course, most people generally feel safer when surrounded by daylight and other people. Many UALR students say they feel less safe at night. Security is still present, but the campus is much more deserted—only a small percentage of students live on campus, so there aren’t many people around once classes end. Perhaps the most unsafe spot is the area that connects the campus to the University Plaza. This area is rarely populated at night many, so there have been some robberies and thefts here. But overall, UALR provides decent security to its students.
