Campus Safety

The University of Houston is an open campus filled with people who care about each other. Because of its open accessibility, all students, faculty and staff are encouraged to exercise a sense of personal responsibility for their own safety and well-being, and the safety and well-being of others. While crime can happen anywhere, when we act as a community that knows and cares about the safety of others, ourselves and our property, we lessen the likelihood of being victimized, and we showcase our Cougar Pride. 

Throughout the year, we'll highlight safety and prevention tips related to an array of campus issues. This month, we want to share with you information on contacts for help. For other safety and crime prevention information, see additonal tips.

UH’s Sexual Misconduct Policy

UH’s sexual misconduct policy seeks to eliminate sexual misconduct from happening, prevent its recurrence and address its effects. This is done through education, training and serious consequences for violation of the Policy. To learn about the policy, check out this CougarSAFE video.
