Campus Safety

Campus safety is of paramount importance at UW-L. We strive to provide a safe and comfortable community in which students and staff live, learn, and work. We have a full-time campus police service that works closely with area agencies to ensure a safe community. We also have campus services and resources such as blue light phones for emergency calls and a free Safe Ride bus for students that travels to many popular destinations throughout the La Crosse community. We invite you to view our campus and community crime statistics to understand that even though our statistics are low, we continuously work with our students to encourage personal and community safety measures.
