Resident Safety and Security

Keeping our residents safe and healthy is of vital concern to University Housing Services (UHS). While the University is a relatively safe place, crimes do occur on campus. UHS provides a number of resources, services, and programs designed to help students be safe during their years living in University Housing. Though UHS and University Police work closely to provide for your safety, it is our hope that residents learn to create and maintain a physically safe, functional, and clean-living environment in the residential community.


Stayed informed about safety on campus and resources available to you! Visit the Cal Poly Pomona Emergency Services Webpage.
