Angelo State University is a safe place. There are very few incidents that occur on the campus itself, and the campus police are always on patrol. There are call boxes dotting the campus, so if a student feels in danger, he or she can call for a police escort. The campus is also well-lit, and very few streets run through it. The dorms are fairly secure, and it is difficult to gain entry without an ID and pin number of a resident in that dorm. The only major incidents in recent times have been car break-ins, where no people have been harmed but lots of damages have been done.
ASU offers many health programs for its students, such as health classes, health fairs, and a campus clinic. The Center for Human Performance (CHP) has four basketball/volleyball courts for student use, as well as typical gym equipment like treadmills, free weights, and stationary machines. The CHP also has an indoor track and a rock climbing wall. There are free fitness classes for students, and personal trainers are available for student use. There is also a health fair once a semester to showcase what San Angelo has to offer for ASU students in regard to their health. The fair brings in local hospitals, health food stores, fitness centers, and specialists like chiropractors or massage therapists.
