Personal Safety

Many crimes occur because people are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Avoid people and situations that may invite trouble. Trust your instincts and trust your University authorities. When in doubt, call the Police.

WVUPD may be able to assist you with planning your travel safely to new locations or cities with which you are not familiar. Contact WVUPD at 293-COPS for assistance.

Do not bring valuables or cash you do not need to these places. Identify your textbooks with your name, address and a code on a certain page.

Crime statistics, unfortunately, indicate that most crimes on campus are committed by people who observe opportunities for an easy score.
