The University of Missouri-St. Louis Police Department and residential life personnel work closely together to create a safe and comfortable living and learning environment. Security and safety seminars are held for residents throughout the year in order to increase their awareness of crime potential, improve campus safety, and inform them of major crimes or threats to the campus. Alert bulletins are posted in the residential areas; a well-informed resident is a safer resident. Residents must realize that a crime can happen to anyone and that they must take their own safety seriously. Since the campus is open twenty-four hours a day, always keep your room locked and carry your key

Theft is the most common security problem in the residential areas, so take the necessary precautions. Be aware of your surroundings and what is going on around you, both in and out of residential areas. Residents are encouraged to report the presence of suspicious persons to the residential life personnel or Campus Police. Do not attempt to stop or detain any suspicious persons yourself.

CALL THE CAMPUS POLICE AT 314-516-5155 AND REQUEST ASSISTANCE. THINK SAFETY FIRST!

The security of residential areas includes continuous patrol of the building and grounds by residential life personnel and the Campus Police Department. In addition, plans are underway to complete installation of card access entry systems on all residential housing.
