College Junior

Health & Safety: I honestly have not heard one thing about sexual assault here on campus whether it happened to someone, or a program was taking place to raise awareness, i am not aware.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The only crime I have heard of since being here is cars getting broken into. That happens all around town.. Signs everywhere reminding you to lock your car and take your valuables with you.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The university has improved on the measures of safety within the last 3 years.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally have not experienced any safety issues throughout the time I have been attending school. I feel safe at all times when I walk around campus and I always see security driving around making sure everything is running smoothly in school. One thing that I love about school is that the Police Department are available to receive our calls in case we do not want to walk to our cars on our own. They are kind enough to take our call and come pick us up and escort us to our vehicles to feel safe. Safety is actually a subject that the Police Department takes very serious and they constantly have meetings with all students to help us feel secure and protected.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I am not able to afford the University parking so I have to park nearby the houses close to the University. My car has never been vandalized, the University is centered in a nice neighborhood. I do not feel any threat walking to school not do I feel any threat walking to my classes in the campus. I always see police officers nearby the neighborhood and I always see security officers ready to help in case of any emergencies in campus.

Outside from all of the fun that's had on campus, UTEP has a good law enforcement system to prevent the fun from getting out of hand. With a police station located on campus, students can be sure that there will always be some sort of law official around the area. Campus police are constantly patrolling in and around campus day and night, either by vehicles, bicycles, or mopeds. Students in the surrounding area do not have to worry about who lurks around the corner or if there is some sort of warning about creeps. Police will respond to any accident—pronto. Above all that, campus police will send out mass e-mails or text messages alerting students if any incidents have occurred within or around campus. Emergency numbers and phones are placed throughout campus, with flashing blue lights that provide a beacon of safety for anyone in trouble.

The University also offers health support, providing students health services at a cheap price. With medical costs being so high in the "real world," students can enjoy a brief period of low-cost doctor visits and medical prescriptions. However, students should not expect to have family or friends also benefit from this deal. UTEP is very observant and careful with patients. Procedures must be taken to show proof that the student is in need of care. Overall, though, the health services staff at UTEP has a very friendly crew ready to serve students.
