Stay Safe on Campus

Indiana University and the IUPUI campus community remind students, staff, and faculty to take effective safety precautions.

Be alert. If you're alone on campus, watch your surroundings. Your safety depends mostly upon your own attitude and actions. Use common sense and do not place yourself in a location or situation to become a victim of crime.
