Campus Safety Tips

ASU's number one priority is to ensure a safe and secure environment for our students to thrive academically.

We encourage students, staff and faculty to follow some basic safety tips:

  • Be aware of your surroundings, and remember to take precautions at all times.
  • Walk or jog with a friend, never alone.
  • Avoid isolated, dark areas.
  • Use campus Safety Escort Services on the Tempe campus at night.
  • Tell a friend where you are going and when you will return.
  • Carry a whistle or noisemaker. Do not be afraid to shout if you need help.
  • Park in an area that will be well lit when you return.
  • When approaching your car or door, get your keys out in advance. Don't fumble for your keys at the door.
  • Before driving, lock your doors and put on your seat belt.
  • If you witness any suspicious activity, call 911 or ASU Police at 480-965-3456
