Safety

Safety programs

We have the IU Police Department, a free campus bus service with late-night service on weekends, and a safety escort ride if you don’t want to walk alone at night. Campus is well lighted. All residence halls have emergency preparedness plans and staff who live on site and are available 24/7.

We also teach students about safety issues beginning at New Student Orientation. Plus, the Division of Student Affairs has a range of safety-related services, and Protect IU offers safety information on topics from emergency preparedness to securing technology.

Emergency notifications

Anytime there’s a campus emergency, like severe weather, the IU-Notify messaging system will alert you by phone, email, text message, sirens, and more. Just make sure IU has your up-to-date contact information.
