This information is provided as part of The University of Akron's commitment to safety and security on campus and in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act and The Higher Education Act: Fire Safety Report.
Your safety is our priority and our concern. It also must be your concern. As a university, we work very hard to prevent crime, fire, accidents and illness, but nothing we do is as important as what you do - and, in some cases, don't do. The University of Akron Police Department has primary responsibility for crime prevention and law enforcement on campus. Other areas, such as Student Affairs, Parking and Transportation, Environmental Health and Safety and many others also contribute to making The University of Akron a safer place to study, work and live.
This site contains valuable information about how you can help us keep you safe, on and off campus. Please pay special attention to the safety tips. Following them may greatly reduce the chances that you'll be the victim of crime, become injured or lose valuables.
Reports for regional campuses of The University of Akron are reported separately by those campuses.
Let's work together to have a safe year.
