UAS makes safety a top priority and it expects its students to take a responsible attitude toward their own safety and the safety of their fellow students. Crime prevention and safety is the primary responsibility of UAS, but it takes the cooperation of all members of the campus community to achieve a safe environment. The three campuses of UAS are very safe, as compared to many universities, but safety should never be taken for granted. Victims and/or witnesses of crime, no matter how small, should report incidents to the police and to UAS officials, to maintain the safe living and learning environment.
The municipal police department has the responsibility to enforce the law and to respond to all reports of criminal activity. The University 's Facilities Services department has jurisdiction over the UAS efforts to promote safety and security on its campuses.
