Many emergency phones are located throughout campus.  These phones have a blue light on top of them and are a direct link to the University Police.

Chancellor's Walk for Safety

This is an event in which students come together to walk around campus to point out potentially dangerous spots, i.e. dim lighting, overgrown bushes, etc., and call for their repair or improvement.

The walk is an opportunity for students and University administrators to check for areas that raise potential security concerns.

Safety Tips

City of Oshkosh Police Emergency # 911

  • Always keep your car locked when driving and when parked.

  • Avoid walking alone, especially if you are depressed, exhausted or intoxicated.

  • If you think someone is following you, change your route, walk faster, slower, or cross the street. If you sense danger, go to a well lighted public area.

  • If you are ever approached or observe something suspicious, obtain a description of any person or vehicle involved, including license plate number. This information can be valuable for law enforcement purposes.

  • Always carry a cellular phone with the police as your number 1 speed dial choice.

  • Consider carrying pepper spray and/or a personal alarm.

  • Do not engage in conversation with unknown individuals, especially if threatening language or insults have been used.

  • Leave your purse at home if possible. If you must carry one, hold it firmly, close to your body.
