Commitment to Safety

Commitment to Safety

We are committed to providing a campus environment for students, staff and visitors free of unsafe or hazardous conditions. Student safety is our priority, and we encourage residents to familiarize themselves with the Residence Hall Manual or University Apartments Manual, which include detailed information about emergency preparedness, personal responsibility, evacuation areas, fire and life safety, and more.

There are many things you can do to help keep you and your property safe. If you ever feel unsafe on campus, call 911. For non-emergencies, you can call the UT Police Department at 512-471-4441.

Safety Office

Our Safety Office reports to the director of residential facilities and is responsible for the department safety program.
