UNLV is trying to keep its students safe on campus with the new semester, through published safety tips and multiple resources for students. 

In 2022 so far, 569 entries have been logged into UNLV’s official University Police Department crime log for the Maryland Pkwy campus. While many of these crimes are minor offenses, such as speeding violations or trespassing, some have been as extreme as burglary or battery. 

UNLV publicly offers multiple emergency contacts for needs that range from police and medical to counseling, automotive and environmental hazards. All of these emergency contacts are available on UNLV’s website

University Police Services published a collection of personal safety tips broken down into late-night campus safety and pedestrian safety. The pedestrian safety tips are even further categorized into tips for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. 

Emergency call boxes can be found across both UNLV campuses. These boxes connect users directly to the university police dispatch center. A map of all the call boxes on each campus can be found on UNLV’s website

RebelSAFE is UNLV’s official mobile safety app. Students can use the app to report an anonymous tip to UPD, request a late-night escort on campus, contact police dispatch directly and send GPS location to friends. The app is available for free on the app store
More safety information can be found on the UNLV and University Police Services websites.
