Student Safety

The safety and security of residents involves a partnership between the students and the University. Safety features in our residence halls include cameras on exterior doors and ACTion card access to most residence halls and their elevators. Additionally, the COPS program brings UAPD officers into residence halls to develop relationships with students and maintain a presence during the evening and night hours. Residents help maintain the safety of their community by keeping doors closed to non-residents and reporting any concerns to residence hall staff or UAPD.

All students are encouraged to sign up for Tide Text Alerts, to receive important safety information, including information about severe weather. Visit to sign up for Tide Text Alerts.

We encourage you to review UA's Safer Living Guide for information on how to practice smart personal safety.
