Health & Safety: The campus is in Center-City so it is relatively safe.

Health & Safety: It's hard for the administration to be in charge of safety throughout the campus, seeing as though our campus is center city Philadelphia. They try their hardest to have plans, advice and guards to protect students while walking around the city, but it is not a regular college campus. I have to cross S. Broad Street multiple times a day to get to different campus buildings.

Health & Safety: We talk about these issues openly.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The University of the arts is a Philadelphia college. Philadelphia is one of the most dangerous cites on the east coast so you do have to be a little cautious especially walking where very few people go or alone at night. I always make sure my phone is on and charged, walking with a group, and have my on hand to use as a weapon for protection. My residence hall has security cameras or every floor and has an electronic door so only students can get in. There have been a few incidents since i came here but don't feel threatened or unsafe in the least. Philly is pretty awesome if you get to know it.

Health & Safety: If you feel unsafe whatsoever campus security can escort you across campus.
