Protect Yourself

Safety is a partnership, a shared responsibility, among all parties - students, police, administrators, city leaders and community members. Giving the community tools and information to prevent crime before it happens is a top priority at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. No matter where you live or where you travel around campus, a few simple steps can dramatically reduce your chances of being a victim of crime:

  •   Never walk alone, particularly at night.
  •   Carry a cell phone and dial 911 for help.
  •   Lock your doors, even when you are home.
  •   Use your instincts and common sense as your first defense.
  •   Don't let anyone you don't know into your home, apartment, or residence hall.
  •   If you plan to drink, do so in moderation to avoid putting yourself in a position of increased risk.
  •   Use the network of campus safety resources.
