3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are some few robberies of computers and stuff like that during the semester. But I haven't had any incident in my 6 years at the college.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Health is perfect but safety not very good. There's criminality and robbery

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Like in many places, some polices make their job and have the disposition to attend the needs of the students, but others are there only to get paid later. Few time ago by email we were informed about the crimes taking place in the campus, but only that the information, not with a solution presented. Recently, no many crimes were reported, thats mean the crimes are less now.

Health & Safety: Safety Comes First – During the day the Mayaguez campus of the University of Puerto Rico is an excellent place to be, you don't have to worry about anything, but as the night comes in and the number of police officers reduces, you better watch out. It's not safe to be alone studying or walking in some areas. There is a security escort service which helps a lot but not every student knows about this. Every month students receive an email stating all criminal activity and incidents reported along that past month which helps students keep in mind where and when not to be and to watch out for certain stuff. Healt services among the campus is excellent, with free dental and medical services with real doctors as you would find in any hospital. Theres a paramedical group and ambulance crew available 24/5 in campus and will respong inmediately an alarm is raised. Health services is excellent, security is good but could be better.

Health & Safety: Campus Crime – During the time I've been studying here, I have heard of various crimes inside the university campus. Many of them involve the attack from burglars to women. In my case this is very stressing and affect the time I dedicate to study inside the university facilities.
