Campus life can keep you busy day and night. Whether you’re leaving a night class, working late in the lab or studying at home, you should know about the strategies UC and the city of Cincinnati have implemented to keep you safe. The past few years have brought more officers patrolling campus, improved street lighting around campus and safety technology to help with reporting crimes. Although the crime rates for UC and the surrounding Clifton area have been declining, it’s still important to stay aware of the available safety resources.
NightRide & shuttle services
During the day, the UC shuttle has you covered for transportation between campuses and throughout the surrounding areas. When you need to get around at night, take advantage of the NightRide service run by students. There are ten shuttles available for transportation within a one-mile radius of campus. Make sure to have your valid UC ID card, and remember you can bring one non-UC person with you as a guest. Follow NightRide on Twitter for updates on availability and scheduling.
Volunteering to provide greater visibility and discourage crime on campus, public safety ambassadors can help you feel more secure on a dark walk across campus. Just call 513-446-2968 between 1:30 and 10 p.m. for a safety ambassador escort, and you won’t have to walk alone. Use this service next time you’re leaving the library at night or staying late for class.
