4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I adore the education courses freshman take in regards to alcohol and sexual assault. Many other Universities should consider making such courses mandatory as well.

Health & Safety: Generally the campus environment is safe. Every now and again there is a rash of armed robberies. The main issue regarding security that needs to be addressed is the widespread hacking of email accounts, and online activity that occurs while using computers at University Library- leading to subsequent stalking.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety isn't up to par, I remember in one month alone we got so many crime alerts.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We are located near the heart of downtown, so there are going to be some who are going to commit crimes, but I feel like the campus is doing a good job of keeping things safe. The campus police work hand in hand with the police department if anything bad happens. There are several hospitals that occupy space right near the university, so if you get hurt it is not far away. There are campus phones that are blue with a light on top that are there just in case you do not feel safe and need someone to pick you up. For mental health there are therapists located near campus where the first few sessions are free. And most of all everyone, from my experiences, will care if something bad happens, so do not be afraid to ask for help.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police station (real police, not campus police) is apart of the campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The IUPUI campus is exceptionally safe, considering its urban location. There is a great number of campus police that remains very present during the day and night. Although there have been instances of students’ cars being broken into or muggings, action is taken immediately by campus police. There is going to be crime no matter where you go, but knowing that criminal activity is being closely monitored and taken very seriously is comforting. In the instances when there have been muggings and theft, there are usually signs and sketches of suspects posted right away. The police are very alert, and they help make the students feel safe and protected. Also, the IUPUI Police Web site ( is a great place to learn more about police services such as the 24-hour escorts and rape-defense classes.

The relatively low number of residential living units also contributes to the safety and security of the campus. While there are, of course, drinking- and drug-related crimes reported in residential areas, they are few and far between compared to most traditional campuses that have consistent recurring problems with house parties and underage drinking. This probably helps the campus police focus on more serious crime instead of typical concerns of campus police (drinking, drugs, and hazing). In general, there have been very few major safety concerns at IUPUI—and when there are concerns, action is taken immediately.
