Safety Guidelines

If you see something suspicious, use your best judgment and communicate to IU Police.

Escorts: The university provides safety escorts twenty-four hours a day. These are available by calling 274-SAFE (274-7233). Between 6:00 p.m. and midnight, a special vehicle is provided for this service by Parking Services. At all other times IUPUI police and security officers provide escorts on foot and by vehicle for persons concerned about their personal safety.

Active Shooter: Visit the Protect.iu.edu page to learn about active shooter scenarios and review the "Run, Hide, Fight" procedure. If you have any specific questions or need clarification, you can email our building coordinator Angel Campbell at or contact Carlos Garcia on the IUPUI campus.

Thefts & Break-ins

All thefts or suspected break-ins, no matter how minor, should be reported to the Campus Police.  The general number is 4-7911.  This is the best way to minimize thefts since the Campus Police can note trends and step-up vigilance appropriately.  Also, thefts will be monitored by the Dean’s office please report all thefts to Angel Campbell (4-0631).
