Most students agree that they feel safe on campus. You will only find predominately students, faculty, staff, or visitors treading through campus. URI is not in the middle of a city or surrounded by other main attractions—it is just a college campus, and every person on campus has a reason for being there. This limits the amount of outsiders that may straggle into URI and allows students to feel safe and free to walk around campus without having to worry about any outside elements.
Students say that safety precautions, like emergency phones and escorts, make them feel more comfortable on campus, especially at night. Since the campus is rather large, well-lit areas are essential for providing safety once the sun sets. However, students are encouraged to walk in groups at night, and they shouldn’t let just anyone into the resident halls. All residents need an ID in order to enter the dorms, but people do get in without them through the help of fellow students. Security cameras have been installed in dorms, throughout campus, and in parking lots, and police patrol the campus 24 hours, seven days a week. There are also large, blue emergency stations around campus that students can use to notify police if they are in trouble or just need an escort back to the dorms. A close eye is kept on students, and the University is doing all it can to provide for the students' safety. When it comes to safety, all is well at URI.
