Parents are also encouraged to sign up for the Parent e-mail listserv. Parent messages are sent throughout the academic year, to let you know about new items on the UCCS Parent Web site: http://www.uccs.edu/parents/
Police services are provided by the Department of Public Safety at UCCS and residents should promptly report to the Department of Public Safety, x3111, and the Office of Residence Life and Housing any incident of theft, vandalism, or unsafe conditions. Whenever possible, the resident should furnish a detailed description of the offender, time and date, make and color of the car, license plate number, etc. Call 911 in case of an emergency or to report criminal activity. An emergency is defined as any immediate threat to life or property. Incidents that are not life-threatening or criminal in nature, but require assistance from a Residence Life staff member, call the on-duty cell phone.
