4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. Blue phones are easily accessible, through them you can speak directly to the police if you need to make a report or request an escort.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've been at UALR for three years now and I've done perfectly fine although every once in a while we hear on the news about a crime such as someone stealing a phone but other than that I feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is getting better. You can occasionally see security officers driving around the campus in golf carts and there are also many "emergency" call-out stations located across the entire campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't been here long, so I'd say it's okay.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police always make sure no one is trying to break into anyone car and noting bad is going on around campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Security at the University is pretty good, and public safety officers have a strong presence on campus. While walking to and from class, students will probably see at least one security guard patrolling either in a car or on foot. Some patrol officers even take classes with the students.

Probably the safest time at the University is during the day, since that’s when most students are on campus. Of course, most people generally feel safer when surrounded by daylight and other people. Many UALR students say they feel less safe at night. Security is still present, but the campus is much more deserted—only a small percentage of students live on campus, so there aren’t many people around once classes end. Perhaps the most unsafe spot is the area that connects the campus to the University Plaza. This area is rarely populated at night many, so there have been some robberies and thefts here. But overall, UALR provides decent security to its students.
