The campus is abuzz about the Department of Public Safety’s new electronic traffic updates. UHDPS in currently running a Twitter feed that will be updated concerning parking lot and traffic issues – You can either follow the feed through your own Twitter account, or simply check the site when you want the current conditions. To go along with Twitter is the new UHDPS parking lot capacity map which shows up-to-date lot capacity and traffic problems - For convenience, both of these can be accessed from your mobile device.

UHDPS has also created a site where offense reporting can be done online at your convenience. This form is not to be used to report crimes that are in progress, traffic collisions, or other incidents that would require an immediate response. In those instances, you should dial 911 or call the UHDPS dispatch center at 713-743-3333. This form would be used to report minor crimes such as unattended/unsecured thefts that occurred on the property on the University of Houston (UH) campus, UH Sugar Land, UH Cinco Ranch and UH Victoria.

To help the entire campus community, the administration also maintains a MySafeCampus account for reporting fraud, waste or abuse – or anything else worth reporting. MySafeCampus is the tool which lets you participate in making the campus a better place. Reporting an incident or action can be completely confidential.
