Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Even though the University is located in a rough area of San Antonio, there is rarely any major crime on campus, and, for the most part, students say they feel safe here. The crime that does happen in the area is away from the University, and it seems like most people tend to respect the campus. The University police patrol the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even on weekends and holidays.

There have been multiple cases of vandalism and false fire alarms, and the campus police tend to give out lots of parking tickets, but there is rarely anything more serious than that. However, if something major were to happen, there is an emergency system that automatically alerts students on their phone, through e-mail, or a campus announcement. Overall, the University police are very responsive when a situation occurs.
