Safety and Crime Prevention Tips

Although we enjoy a safe campus, no area is totally immune from crime; precautions should always be taken to protect yourself and your property.

  • Do not walk alone, especially after dark. If you can’t walk with a friend, call (585) 395-SAFE (2733) to request an escort. SafeRide escort service is provided daily between the hours of 8 pm and 2 am.
  • Know the locations of campus “Blue Light” telephones. Each phone is a direct line to University Police and invaluable in the event of an emergency, when seconds count.
  • Alcohol and other drugs adversely affect judgment and behavior and their use is frequently related to incidents of sexual assault.
  • Always close and LOCK your Residence Hall room, when you are sleeping or leaving it, even if only for a few minutes.
  • LOCK your vehicle every time you park it and secure all valuables out of sight.
  • Protect your identity by safeguarding your credit card numbers, PINs, social security number, address, date of birth, etc. Give this information ONLY to persons you know to be authorized.
  • Participate in “Operation ID”, “Community Policing” and other campus crime prevention programs.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and of anything that appears unusual. Report suspicious conditions immediately to University Police, (585) 395 2226.
