4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. At the same time I'm an athletic straight white male so that comes with a grain of salt.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Although in milwaukee, Marquette itself is very safe.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: While there are some aspects that could be improved, overall the University does a great job about offering confidential therapy, reliable Medical Clinic services, and the Marquette Police Department is fairly easy to talk to about concerns or questions.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Department of Public Safety, an important part of MU, functions to create a safe environment for members of the University community to live, work, and study. The department has a highly visible presence both on and off campus, and also sponsors safety education programs, which encourage solid safety habits in both students and faculty. Students do say that the cost of being located in a major city is that the University is located near a rather shady area, especially on the outskirts of the official campus grounds. Yet, the occurrences of threats to personal safety are not frequent, and if you use common sense, there is no need to worry.

Student safety services on campus include offering safety escorts and transports throughout campus, observing and reporting suspicious or unusual activity, and providing an active presence in the off-campus area. The Department of Public Safety knows there is a potential safety problem, and they want to keep students safe. The University’s residence halls are kept safe and secure—residents must pass a reception desk and swipe their ID card in order to get in. The desk is staffed with student receptionists during the day and into the early evening. At night, Public Safety officers operate the reception desk.
