Information Center



The University Police Department exists for the protection of people and property within and adjacent to the university community. The staff of certified (commissioned) police officers strives to provide a safe and secure campus environment. This is done through enforcement as well as engaging in activities with the Offices of Student Life and Residence Life to promote safety and responsible behavior. The officers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


This unit also works with the campus parking office. Parking space is very limited. Lots designated as commuter parking for students and staff are controlled by permits sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Permits for residence hall parking for students living on campus are sold on a priority basis, depending on students’ year in school. Contact Campus Parking for information (608) 785-8061.
