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

Public Safety

UConn’s police and fire departments provide safety and security for all of our students at the Storrs campus. In addition, UConn Police has substations and personnel at our campuses in Avery Point, Farmington, Hartford (Downtown and UConn Law), Stamford, and Waterbury.

In the event of an emergency, our campus-wide Alert Notification Systeminforms the community of the situation, its severity, and the appropriate actions to take. Students are automatically registered to receive alerts using information provided in the Student Administration System. Students are encouraged to ensure their information is up-to-date.
