Campus Health & Safety

Feel secure.

The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority. Our professional public safety and health services units are dedicated to your welfare, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Public Safety

Since our main campus in Storrs is essentially its own town, UConn’s police and fire departments provide safety and security for all of our students.

In the event of an emergency, our campus-wide Alert Notification System informs the community of the situation, its severity, and the appropriate actions to take. All students are encouraged to register their cell phones with our system.

Student Health Services

Primary medical care, a women’s clinic, nutrition services, counseling and mental health services, physical therapy, and more are offered through Student Health Services on campus.

Office of Diversity and Equity

UConn is committed to creating and maintaining a campus environment free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment, sexual violence, dating/domestic violence and stalking.  The Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) investigates University conduct code and policy violations when the accused individual is a UConn student or employee, including investigations of sexual misconduct.  ODE’s Associate Vice President and Title IX Coordinator, Elizabeth Conklin, is responsible for ensuring that all reports are addressed by UConn.  For more information about sexual harassment, sexual violence, dating/domestic violence and stalking reporting and resources, please visit
