Annual Safety and Security Brochure

Washington University in St. Louis is committed to providing a safe environment for all members of our community to learn, live, teach and work. The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is one of our highest priorities.

We continue to work hard to make the campus safe and secure, but here, as elsewhere, the responsibility for the safety of everyone in our community belongs to each of us individually. This annual Safety & Security Guide has been produced in accordance with the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Campus Crimes Statistics Act (Clery Act) and provides information you can use to help keep you and your property safe. I encourage you to become familiar with services provided by the university, participate in security programs, and follow basic personal and property crime prevention procedures. With your active involvement in your safety and the safety of your neighbors, Washington University will remain a desirable and safe community.

Safety and security—your own and others’—are issues about which all of us at the university should continue to be vigilant. Thank you for all that you do to make Washington University a better and safer place.
