Thank You For Feedback On Our Winter Storm Response

Dear students, faculty and staff,

As the UT Austin community strives to move forward following the severe weather event we experienced in February, the Office of Campus Safety learned about your experiences whether you were in a university building or remote location. We wanted to gather your feedback on how the university responded to the emergency situation. Your participation helped us seek improvement on our emergency response processes.

Thank you for your valuable input.

Safety and Security Update, May 2019

The University of Texas Police Department (UTPD) and the Office of Campus Safety work in partnership to continuously evolve and enhance safety measures on and around campus. We regularly pause to update the campus community on our progress as part of our commitment to strategically implement recommendations, form partnerships and realize other efforts to help our campus community feel secure and protected. The following are highlights from the 2018-19 school year; we could not do this without the help of our fellow Longhorns.
