The Safety of Your Child is Our Priority.

At the University of Cincinnati, we have an obligation to students and families as they join our community. Not only do we strive to provide a high quality education, but a range of resources that will help students remain secure throughout their college career.

The Department of Public Safety's goal is to provide students with resources to ensure their safety, teach them to make smart decisions and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.

Throughout this website, you'll find resources and services aimed to enhance student safety and awareness.

We ask for your partnership, as a parent, to talk with your son or daughter about the safety resources and services we provide.

  • Blue Help Phones - Strategically located around campus to contact UC Police for emergency and non-emergency needs, a blue phone is usually within sight.
  • LiveSafe App - Free mobile app available through iTunes and Google Play - connects users with UC Police and allows friends or family members to monitor users in real-time as they walk to a destination.
  • NightRide - Free nightime shuttle service provides reliable transportation to and from locations within a one mile radius around campus
  • Safety Ambassadors - Patrol off-campus areas and serve as extra eyes and ears for police. Ambassadors can also escort your child if needed. Call 513-446-2968. Hours are 6 p.m. - 2:30 a.m.
