Here at the University of Pittsburgh, you are a valued member of our community, and we take your safety very seriously. We want you to be safe and secure while you are pursuing your education. That is why ensuring a safe environment for the entire campus community is among our highest priorities. We have dedicated a lot of effort to that goal, and we have outstanding facilities and people to help keep you safe. I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the information in this booklet so that you are fully aware of the safety resources available to you.
I also encourage you to keep in mind that you have a role in your safety and in the safety of your fellow students. Even though Pittsburgh is a safe city and Pitt is a safe campus, the safety of all on campus is still a shared responsibility. There are several ways you can help. First, be aware of your environment. Use common sense and good judgment as you move about campus and also as you travel to other parts of Pittsburgh. Second, follow good safety practices. Take advantage of the available safety resources and 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.
