Although it's tempting to equate a big city with high crime rates, DU and its surrounding areas are exceptionally safe. Probably the most serious campus-related incidents within the past few years have been attempted sexual assaults, but both DU's security department and the Denver Police Department are quick to respond to campus concerns. The most common petty crimes, such as vandalism or theft, are usually related to excessive alcohol consumption at out-of-hand parties.
Students often cite security services, such as the SafeRide shuttle program and 24-hour emergency phone stations, as particularly helpful in times of need. As is the case with any university, DU students should always be aware of their surroundings and try not to travel alone, especially late at night. However, for the most part, DU and Denver are safe, inviting, and non-threatening places to live.
