Safety on Campus

The safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors is our top priority. That’s why, across the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, we engage in wide-ranging safety efforts. And it’s why we partner with local communities to help keep our off-campus neighborhoods safe. In all of these efforts, everyone has a role to play. Here you will find the information you need to help maintain our U of M culture of safety.
