Campus Safety

Classes are in session, the summer is winding down, and it’s time to think of safety and security practices to use on campus.

  • Program the University Police emergency telephone number, 214-648-8911, into the speed dial of your cell phone.
  • When walking in public (especially after dark) walk with a friend or call the University Police for a personal escort, which is available 24/7.
  • Locate all Emergency Call Boxes between where you normally park and where you take classes or work. Secure your bicycle to a bicycle rack and register it on the University Police Crime Prevention website.
  • Don’t leave valuables in the passenger compartment of your car.  Take them with you or lock them in the trunk.
  • If working or studying alone, after hours on campus, lock yourself in and call the University Police to let officers know who and where you are. Call again when you leave.
