Health and Safety
We strive to promote safety and awareness for on-campus residents. Apartment & Residence Life works closely with the UTA Police Department, the Fire Marshal and other safety areas to educate and inform students about safe living practices.
Safety on Campus – The Office of Student Success Programs offers a directory of safety resources at the University.
Shuttle Services – If you do not have a car, UT Arlington provides Shuttle Services to get you around campus. The on-campus shuttle service is free to all students and runs Monday-Friday during the day. The campus Escort Service provides free rides to students in the evenings until 1:00 a.m. The Mav Mover, shuttle bus, provides transportation on Saturdays to several off campus locations for a $2.00 fee. The shuttle schedule includes stops at the Parks Mall and Wal-Mart on South Cooper Street.
Campus Crime Watch - Modeled after the nationwide Neighborhood Crime Watch, this program promotes on-campus community awareness about crime and how to prevent and report it.
UT Arlington has its own police department. Its authorized strength of 112 includes 41 sworn police officers who provide a safe learning environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the campus. All of our campus residences employee safety measures to ensure that students are safe and secure in their environments. These include photo ID entry, Campus Crime Watch, and The Great Escape, a vivid simulation and training session on how to survive in the event of a fire.
