3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's a school in the heart of downtown, so that attracts a decent amount of crime.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's been incidents of armed suspects around campus but I don't expect anything less than that because of the fact were are located downtown. There are emergency blue light systems throughout campus and also officers are more than welcome to escort students back to their car or their resident halls at night.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school has its own little section of Indianapolis where every block is university related. Considering we're downtown in a major city and I have yet to witness or hear about anyone being a victim of crime, I have to say they are doing a wonderful job.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Most of the events take place off campus, but the majority of students live off 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.
