Safety and Security
We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment in which academic endeavors thrive. All campus safety and security services are available to both full-time and part-time students.
“I hope that every member of our campus community is mindful that we are a welcoming, inclusive and courteous place where people from different backgrounds can pursue their educational goals in an atmosphere of tolerance and safety.”

Annual Security and Fire Safety Report
Maintaining a safe campus is a responsibility the entire campus community takes very seriously.
UIS has made a copy of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (PDF) available in compliance with federal regulations and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Crime Statistics Act.
The report includes crime statistics and residence hall fire statistics for the past three years. This report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security and other crime prevention information.
The report is intended to promote your own awareness of safety, to learn about campus resources regarding prevention of and responses to certain incidents and crimes, and to make our safe campus an even safer place.
