Health & Safety
Since our main campus in Storrs is essentially its own town, UConn has its own Division of University Safety. Our own police and fire departments, as well as the Office of Emergency Management, ensure a safe and secure campus for all of our students.
In the event of an emergency, our campus-wide Alert Notification System informs the community of the situation, its severity, and the appropriate actions to take. All students are encouraged to register their cell phones with our system.
Student Health Services
Primary medical care, a women’s clinic, nutrition services, counseling and mental health services, physical therapy, and more are offered through Student Health Services on campus.
Office of Institutional Equity
UConn is committed to creating and maintaining a campus environment free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment, sexual violence, dating/domestic violence, and stalking.
The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE), formerly the Office of Diversity and Equity, investigates University conduct code and policy violations, including investigations of sexual misconduct, when the accused individual is a UConn student or employee.
OIE’s Associate Vice President and Title IX Coordinator, Elizabeth Conklin, is responsible for ensuring that all reports are addressed by UConn. For more information about sexual harassment, sexual violence, dating/domestic violence, and stalking reporting and resources, please visit sexualviolence.uconn.edu.
Annual Security and Fire Safety Report
Every year, University of Connecticut releases the Annual Security and Fire Report to the University community. Statistics are gathered at the Storrs campus and all the regional campuses that are part of the University. The most current Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (pdf and full text) can be viewed at universitysafety.uconn.edu/police/clery/clery-annual-security-report/. Written copies of this report may also be obtained at the Division of University Safety at 126 North Eagleville Road, Storrs, CT 06269.
