Safety on Campus

It is important for student organization members to keep safety in mind as they plan events and attend meetings.  The Public Safety Department recommends awareness as the major factor in reducing crime on the campus. 

Don’t let a meeting or event end without confirming that everyone has safe passage home.  Encourage members to walk in groups to parking lots or the residence halls.  Arrange escorts for people who may intend to walk alone.  The Department of Public Safety, Eagle Patrol Program operates a walking escort service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is recommended that people use this service (especially when going to parking lots) to improve personal safety.  Please contact the University Police Department at (323) 343-3700 for assistance.

Should a student organization member or advisor require emergency health assistance, contact the University Police any time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Dial 911 from any telephone or pay telephone at no charge or use an emergency phone (the phones designated with a blue light).

If a student organization member were to lock keys in a vehicle or require a battery jump the Parking Services office can provide assistance.  Contact the Parking Services office at (323) 343-3700.
