Health & Safety: The campus and the neighborhood are both very safe, even at night. Most cafes are closed by midnight and the streets are pretty quiet. (Students will find more nightlife in other neighborhoods in Paris, a short metro or taxi ride away). There have been some cases of theft, but that is probably because there are a lot of tourists in this part of the city and that often comes along with pickpockets and theft. Students should be conscience to not leave out their smart phones and laptops where they can easily be taken. Other than petty theft, there are few concerns about safety at and near AUP.

Health & Safety: Safety is great on the surface. The neighborhood is great, no incidents on campus, etc. However, there are drug and alcohol abuse situations, and even sexual assault outside of class time. I have never encountered any of the above, and I am not easily pressured into reckless behavior, but I have known people who suffered through consequences of one or the other. Not much that the school can do about these, as this is common on any campus - but our Student Affairs and Outreach seem to be on top of it.

Health & Safety: I have never been to the health and safety department but they are there if you need them. AUP is supportive in that aspect.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Paris is an incredibly safe city. The university is located in one of the safest and wealthiest neighborhoods of Paris.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: University is located in a very nice neighborhood where one feels absolutely safe.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University is located in the seventh arrondissement, which is the heart of Paris, and it's surrounded by many historic landmarks which are almost always populated by tourists. It is a very secure area, and it is uncommon to walk more than a few blocks without finding a police car on patrol. The University itself is considered a secure place by its students, who don't think twice about wandering in the surrounding area into the early hours of the morning on the weekends.

It is easy to forget that Paris is a big city when the University and its students are situated in such a safe location. However, it is important to keep in mind that there are places in Paris where it is not the best idea to venture out to on one's own or late at night. These areas are usually unappealing to students anyway, since they do not carry the preconceived charm of Paris. Most of the metros on the outskirts of Paris or near popular tourist areas give warnings against pickpockets and other petty theft. It is important to remember that crime does exist in the city; it is just not as widespread as it is in other places.
