UH Sugar Land Security

UH Sugar Land works closely with the University of Houston Department of Public Safety (UHDPS) to maintain a safe environment. It is important that students, faculty, and staff take an active role in safety on campus by being security conscious at all times and by reporting suspicious persons or situations immediately. UHDPS maintains a Daily Crime Bulletin of reported activity.

Annual Security Report

Each October, UH Sugar Land makes the campus safety report available in the Security Office, Room BH 174, for all interested parties. More information on campus safety can be found at the UH Police Department website.

Children on Campus

The UH Sugar Land buildings and grounds have been designed with adults in mind. Unattended children are not allowed on campus. Children brought to campus must be supervised by an adult at all times. Faculty permission must be obtained prior to bringing a child 17 or under to class.

Emergency Notifications

When severe weather or other emergency situations affect our communities, the UH System universities' presidents or chancellor may decide to close one or more of the UH System institutions to ensure the safety of our employees and students. UH System officials will alert employees and students of closings by its emergency notification systems. For more information, visit the UH Emergency Operations Center
