I feel very very safe here. I don't go out by myself after midnight, but there is a van service that will take you within half a mile of campus from 4 pm to 4 am so you never have to walk by yourself. I have never felt unsafe here. That said, don't be stupid. Don't walk on the street with an iPad in your hand. Be street smart and enjoy the neighborhood.
Thank you for answering. I live in a city where I am usually careful about walking out with my cell phone on hand so your comment makes sense. I am more concerned about feeling safe inside the campus, because it makes sense being cautious outside wherever you go.
regarding safety on campus, ClarkU is a very safe place, it is peaceful and also the students are very warm and accommodating. Make the greatest decision of your life and come on board.
Sounds, great, thanks! I´m definitely keeping Clark on my list!

Due to robberies around the area, the Worcester Police Department has dedicated a 14-person task force to the Clark area. But despite its poor location, Clark maintains an open campus, which means no fences, no security desks in dorms, and no parking garage attendant. Clark does have a swipe card system, on-foot and vehicle patrols, and closed-circuit cameras in the parking garage, and these small measures seem to keep the campus population feeling safe. Crime does take place on campus, but it is mainly vandalism and thefts that can be more logically attributed to Clarkies themselves instead of any outside threat. Walking to and from parties or really late at night is usually done in groups without much issue or complaint. The general feeling of students is that the campus itself is very safe, while the immediate area is only slightly dangerous and can be easily navigated with few precautions. For those who decide they would like some extra protection, emergency call-boxes line all the campus paths, and the escort van will drive you anywhere you want within a quarter mile.
As for the dorm security and police presence, students do not consider the campus police to be excessively apparent. However, they aren’t considered invisible enough to escape student gripes. Campus police should be looked out for whenever you are attempting something you probably shouldn't be doing. On the other hand, they never seem to be around when vandals are smashing vending machines and stealing the contents, which seems to happen at least once a month.
