Health & Safety: UCF has its own police force and the safety is superb on campus as well as the health.

Health & Safety: UCF is a wide open campus which is great as a student I would hate to feel closed off like other campuses I've visited. However this does mean that students need to take the common sense security precautions, although we have a large police force they can't be around 24/7 to make sure students are protected. Lock your car when parking on campus, try not to leave anything valuable in plain sight, don't walk around at late hours alone and especially with a ear-buds in both ears, that's just asking for trouble. I feel rather safe on campus and that's speaking as a student who has taken night classes that end at 9:45, gone to the gym at 11:30 at night having to walk back to my car in an empty garage, etc. There is crime on campus, once again 65,000 strong it's bound to happen, but I wouldn't even consider it a prevalent issue.

Health & Safety: I just wish there was more security on campus. It's a big school with a lot of ground to cover, but safety is important.

If you are considering doing something illegal on campus, don't do it; you'll most likely be caught. UCF has its own police station located on campus, and many officers can be found patrolling the campus. Always drive with caution and obey the speed limits; there's often an officer with a radar gun waiting in the wings. I guess if this is the worst thing that UCF students have to worry about, then it can't be all that bad; Right? Absolutely.

Don't hesitate to call for a Safe Ride if you're on campus after dusk. This is an excellent service that UCF provides so that you'll arrive safely at your destination, whether it be the parking garage or your dorm room.
