5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel really safe walking on campus.

2 College Student

Health & Safety: You are safe on campus but not off

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Given the neighborhood that the University is near, there is a pretty high crime rate in the area. However it very rarely affects students at all due to all the precautions taken by campus to keep students safe.

Among UC students, safety still remains a big concern. In response, the University police department has taken steps to make campus a safer environment for students and staff, particularly at night. In the past few years, on-campus crime has gone down due to additional lighting, blue-light phones, and police presence. The UCPD has also established programs to provide students with escorts and rides home at night. When walking across campus at night, it's best to walk with a friend.

One thing UC students can agree on is the prevalence of crime off campus. It's best to never walk home alone if you live off campus because of the amount of foot traffic in the neighborhoods surrounding campus. For the most part, the neighborhoods are made up of students, but crimes still happen because of criminals coming in from other areas. It's best to be safe, so take one of the University shuttles or utilize the NightRide services. UCPD cruisers or Cincinnati police officers are occasionally seen driving through areas around campus, but it's not often enough to feel safe, especially on darker side streets. It's also important that students keep their cars and apartments locked at all times, especially during extended breaks when thieves tend to go looking for items to steal. Be on the defense, and you'll be safe at UC.
