3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center is out of my knowledge because I've never been. But safety is taken seriously on campus, especially during events. The rules are enforced and the school officers work along with city police to maintain a safe environment.

Health & Safety: the promote the safety of students

Health & Safety: The UTEP Police Department is really there for the students. They are a call away and they even provide escorts if one feels unsafe if it is dark outside and one has to walk to his/her car. They also have a self defense class especially aimed at women and you just have to get some friends together and call them up, and they'll set up the class for you.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's hardly any crimes at school, its pretty safe.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many police officers on campus, but what worries me is that anyone can enter the campus on foot.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Outside from all of the fun that's had on campus, UTEP has a good law enforcement system to prevent the fun from getting out of hand. With a police station located on campus, students can be sure that there will always be some sort of law official around the area. Campus police are constantly patrolling in and around campus day and night, either by vehicles, bicycles, or mopeds. Students in the surrounding area do not have to worry about who lurks around the corner or if there is some sort of warning about creeps. Police will respond to any accident—pronto. Above all that, campus police will send out mass e-mails or text messages alerting students if any incidents have occurred within or around campus. Emergency numbers and phones are placed throughout campus, with flashing blue lights that provide a beacon of safety for anyone in trouble.

The University also offers health support, providing students health services at a cheap price. With medical costs being so high in the "real world," students can enjoy a brief period of low-cost doctor visits and medical prescriptions. However, students should not expect to have family or friends also benefit from this deal. UTEP is very observant and careful with patients. Procedures must be taken to show proof that the student is in need of care. Overall, though, the health services staff at UTEP has a very friendly crew ready to serve students.
