Health & Safety: There are a lot of steps being taken to make sure students are safe. We get text alerts about robberies, sexual assaults, and shootings around campus, and we have a great place to go for support if any of this happens to us.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

UTC has its own campus police unit located on campus in the Administration Building. Police are seen driving through campus at all times of the day and night. The security guards at UTC patrol the insides and outsides of the buildings at all times. Campus police are very quick about filing a police report and helping students in any possible way.

Overall, students at UTC feel safe on campus. Many reported that theft is the most frequent crime and advised students to always lock their dorm rooms and vehicles. Many students appreciate the UTC security guards and on-campus police, but some feel that UTC needs extra protection. UTC offers Mocs Express, which is a golf cart escort service for students who do not want to walk late at night to their dorms or who are too intoxicated to walk on their own. There are also blue-light emergency boxes located throughout campus. These blue lights allow students to automatically connect with the police department and tell the dispatcher the location of the student. Most students think these are the best campus security features.
