5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on when I am on campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: A lot of us heard about a string of sexual assaults in a parking garage near campus through a facebook group. We've never heard anything about it from the university. We do get alerts for robberies etc.

Health & Safety: we have a problem with sexual assult on campus and something needs to be done. im not happy with the ways some victims of assult have been treated "don't file a police report" was told to someone.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Of course things happen everywhere, but it's pretty much safe on this campus. A police officer is either around or nearby and there are emergency buttons all over campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It doesn't seem safe to roam the campus alone. The campus is police is nice and helpful.

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.
