Is campus safe? Yes, we believe the UCCS campus is a very safe environment and to that end we offer numerous crime prevention and self-defense programs for students to attend. UCCS also annually publishes the Campus Safety and Security Report for your viewing. The Department of Public Safety’s web site can be found here and contacted at 1-800-990-8227 extension 3111 if you have any questions or concerns.

Wall ports are also available for connection to our network. Complete information can be found on the web at www.uccs.edu/helpdesk.
