4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i almost always feel safe on campus, no matter what the time or place

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The University sends out emails when there are crimes committed on campus, and I have also gotten some emails lately about a new necklace to protect people... or something like that. I feel pretty safe, although I never go out alone at night.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. There are a lot of security guards, and there are resources for people who feel like they are in danger.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Ann Arbor is a relatively safe city, but like most cities, there are occasional instances of crime. Whenever a crime is committed, every student receives a "Crime Alert" email, providing a detailed description of the event in an effort to prevent further instances. Though Ann Arbor is monitored by DPS (the University’s Department of Public Safety) as well as Ann Arbor's Police Department, students should avoid walking the streets alone late at night. A number of services exist to help students get home after hours. In terms of health, the University Health Services receives a lot of criticism. Scheduling an appointment is nearly impossible, and if you arrive without an appointment, you run the risk of waiting hours to receive care. If you need medical assistance, don't bother trying to schedule an appointment unless you can afford to wait a week. Your best bet is to head to the emergency room or find a ride to Ann Arbor's Urgent Care Clinic.
