Over the past two years, there have been three incidents where students were killed on campus. They were unfortunate occurrences, two of which were committed by non-UConn students. Campus has done a lot to improve safety by limiting nonaffiliated individuals from coming to UConn, especially during the biggest party weekend of the year, Spring Weekend. Overall, these events have not changed students' perceptions of safety on campus.
During the day, campus is very safe. At night, take precautions. When people are intoxicated, you don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s important to avoid dangerous situations and never walk alone at night. Escort and Safe Ride services are available, and shuttle buses run until midnight. There are emergency blue-light stations all over campus, so if students ever find they’re in trouble, with a push of a button, help will be on its way.
