3 College Student

Health & Safety: They have measures to help students get home at night without walking alone.

Health & Safety: they have "blue lights" to press in case of an emergency, police response is also rather quick

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police are very laid back but helpful. There is a small amount of campus crime as there would be in any city, but not enough that one would feel unsafe constantly. Overall, the biggest concerns are crimes off campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not once since my start at this university have I felt unsafe. Even walking back to North Campus at two in the morning, I still felt secure as the streets are well lit, and there's always an emergency blue light phone around if I were ever in need of help. The U-M crime alert system is very efficient in getting the word out about certain crimes that do take lace on campus so that students can take extra precaution in certain areas. Overall, the school does a fantastic job at providing a safe and secure environment, which is not an easy task to do in such an urban setting like Ann Arbor.

Ann Arbor is a relatively safe city, but like most cities, there are occasional instances of crime. Whenever a crime is committed, every student receives a "Crime Alert" email, providing a detailed description of the event in an effort to prevent further instances. Though Ann Arbor is monitored by DPS (the University’s Department of Public Safety) as well as Ann Arbor's Police Department, students should avoid walking the streets alone late at night. A number of services exist to help students get home after hours. In terms of health, the University Health Services receives a lot of criticism. Scheduling an appointment is nearly impossible, and if you arrive without an appointment, you run the risk of waiting hours to receive care. If you need medical assistance, don't bother trying to schedule an appointment unless you can afford to wait a week. Your best bet is to head to the emergency room or find a ride to Ann Arbor's Urgent Care Clinic.
