Your safety is something we take very seriously. One of our highest priorities is ensuring a safe environment for the entire campus community. We have dedicated a lot of effort and resources to that goal and we have outstanding facilities and people to help keep you safe. Evidence of that can be found in the fact that our police department—the third largest in Allegheny County—is recognized as one of the best trained and most professional departments anywhere.
Pittsburgh is a safe city and Pitt is a safe campus, but safety is a shared responsibility. This means that your safety requires your active participation. I ask you to keep three things in mind. First, be aware of your environment. Use common sense and good judgment as you move about campus and also as you travel into other parts of Pittsburgh. Second, follow good safety practices and use available resources. Become familiar with the campus resources included in this publication and use them to help ensure your own safety. Never hesitate to ask for help. Finally, help us keep the campus safe by reporting unsafe conditions to the appropriate staff.
Whether you are coming back to campus or joining us for the first time, welcome and have an enjoyable and safe year.
