TIPS TO KEEP YOURSELF SAFE
To help protect yourself from crime and theft, it is important to always be aware of your surroundings and to use common sense when considering personal property. Remember never to leave your property unattended, whether in a classroom, the library, or your residence hall. Keep emergency contact numbers programmed into your phone just in case you need to report any criminal activity, and follow these simple crime prevention tips when on campus:
- Look around and be aware of your surroundings when you enter or exit a building.
- Always tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return.
- Avoid walking alone at any time. Call for an escort or find a friend to accompany you to appointments or to your car. If you must walk alone, be alert and aware of who and what is around you.
- Avoid shortcuts and stay in well-lit areas with other people around.
- Carry your personal belongings in a backpack or bag that will enable your arms and hands to be free at all times.
- Do not post your whereabouts on social networking sites or places where people might be able to follow you.
- Always lock your car, apartment, or residence hall room when you leave it. Never leave your apartment or hall room door propped or open when you are away from your room, even for short periods.
- Hide belongings in your car when you park.
- If you see any suspicious activity or persons, contact the UT Arlington police right away via your cell phone by calling (817) 272-3381 or by using one of the blue Police call boxes across campus.
