3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe most of the time when walking around alone but I would recommend trying to stay with people at all times at night. There have been several occurrences of robberies but mostly on off campus housing and it is a big town

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus, sometimes I get nervous, but that is more a fact about being a woman and how the world emphasizes that we need to be careful at all times

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There are a lot of resources available for victims of sexual assault. In general there is not much crime on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a very well integrated blue light system on campus. There is also an option of transportation to get home no matter what time of night it is, so students who are out late studying do not have to worry about walking alone at 3 AM.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Although all the information is there, some of the students choose not to listen to it.

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.
