4 College Freshman

Administration: I personally like a strict system, but UNLV does it in such a way that you do not feel suppressed - there's still plenty of freedom!

3 College Junior

Administration: There are no rough restrictions that I know of... Although, I do hear plenty of complaints about parking citations, which are given regularly and without mercy (I received one on the first week of school my first semester. Brutal.).

3 College Sophomore

Administration: One of the first things they discuss at orientation and during the initial dorm meeting is the school police, how to contact them, and how to address an emergency. While my run-ins with the officers has been limited, thankfully, they are friendly and always willing to help, so if a problem arises do not hesitate to call them. Their number one priority is your safety, so even if you are underage, intoxicated, and have been the victim or witnessed an emergency, they will focus on the problem at hand rather than get you in trouble. Again, the school police are on campus for the purpose of helping you and creating a safe environment, do not take them for granted during an emergency.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not very strict, but there are some problems like for example, there's not enough classes being offered for that one class that I need and some classes are not always offered.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness was well managed I always felt safe as well.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Thanks to relatively low crime rates, UNLV isn't in dire need of very strict law enforcement. Other than the flood of police at the beginning of the year as students are arriving to school for the first time, you generally don't encounter UNLV police. Obviously, if you commit a more serious offense, the story might be different. Police response rate is fairly quick at UNLV, and incidences of more serious crimes are usually investigated immediately and resolved quickly. Other than that, the enforcement levels are pretty lax. This, like all things in life, has an exception. Police are known to be there when you least expect it, such as when you're doing something you're not supposed to, so don't think you can do whatever you want on campus.

In 2004, a UNLV graduate was arrested for making a speech with his pants down. Though the graduate student claimed his free speech rights were violated, the problem the police had with him wasn't the speech itself but that he spoke with his pants around his ankles. Things like that don't escape UNLV police officers' attention. So, as long as speakers keep their clothes on and do not get violent, the campus strictness is lenient.
