Public Safety

The Department of Public Safety at the University of Cincinnati is committed to providing a safe campus environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors.

The men and women of UC's Public Safety Department work hand-in-hand with members of the Cincinnati Police Department and other community partners to prevent crime and provide vital safety services and resources. We believe that working as a team is critical to preserving the safety of our campus and community.

Although safety is a shared responsibility, living in a vibrant urban city also requires personal accountability. The Department of Public Safety offers the Bearcat Guardian mobile app to enhance communication between UC Police and the campus community, in addition to free day and evening transportation, safety notifications and fire prevention and safety tips.


Return to Campus


The University of CIncinnati recognizes the health and safety benefits of implementing a multi-phased return to campus in advance of the start of the fall semester on August 24. Each of the four phases of this stepwise approach is underpinned by a set of essential health and safety measures. All members of our community are expected to do their part to ensure the health and safety of themselves and others.
