Serious on Safety
The University of Missouri–Saint Louis is committed to a campus-wide approach to help ensure the safety, security and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors. The university demonstrates this commitment through the implementation of various safety and security initiatives, some of which are listed here.
Although the vast majority of our students, faculty, staff and visitors do not experience crime at UMSL, crime sometimes occurs despite our best efforts. The best protection against campus crime is an aware, informed, and alert campus community that reports crime and suspicious behavior in a timely manner while using reason and caution during their daily activities.
To report suspicious behavior or any other safety issue, please call Campus Police at 314-516-5155.
Campus police officers are here 24 hours a day to protect and serve our campus community. If you do not feel comfortable walking to a parking lot, bus stop, Metrolink stop, or anywhere on campus, please call Campus Police at 314.516.5155 to request an escort at any time.

In case of emergency, please contact Campus Police from any campus phone at 314.516.5155 or dial 911. If you dial 911 from a cell phone or a payphone, tell the dispatcher you are on the UMSL campus as these calls are automatically routed to the St. Louis County Police Communications.
