Safety & Security
UIndy students enjoy a safe and secure campus. Controlled access to residence halls, good lighting, emergency call boxes and personal escorts to cars and residence halls are some of the ways we safeguard the campus community.
UIndy Police know the campus community and are proactive in ensuring safety through regular patrols, traffic control, motorist assistance, and seminars for students on such topics as personal safety and alcohol education.
In addition to the sworn ofﬁcers, UIndy also employs student cadets for special on-campus events, building security, foot patrols and safety escorts at night.
Clery Act Reports
In compliance with the Clery Act, the University of Indianapolis publishes annual reports of crime on campus and maintains daily crime and fire logs.
Residence Hall Security
Residence hall doors are locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Residents are issued a key that unlocks the main entrance doors as well as their rooms and interior hallways. Main entrance door locks are changed during vacation periods; access is then limited to University personnel.
Residence halls are supervised by a live-in Residence Director and several student Resident Assistants.
Emergency Call Boxes
UIndy's tidy, well-lit campus has emergency call boxes in strategic locations to provide extra peace of mind. In addition, UIndy is just minutes from local fire and ambulance services, as well as a hospital and urgent care facility.
Should an emergency occur, UIndy notifies faculty, staff and students through its Watchdog system, which sends instant alerts via cell phone, email and landlines. Watchdog augments other communication channels on and off campus.
