The UW creates and supports reliable and effective services, like Night Ride, a shuttle service that offers rides to students going to and from campus. Despite the precautions in place, however, there have been rare incidents of attack, rape, and other forms of violence reported around campus, and the homeless population on the Avenue concerns some students. The UWPD are a pretty dependable group, but UW's location in the middle of a well-populated city makes it a more dangerous place, and nightfall exposes campus to some of the same dangers city dwellers experience.
Much of the school grounds light up at night for the protection of any night wanderers, the dorms are locked and secured so that only those with keys have access, and emergency phone booths are scattered throughout campus. Certainly campus efforts cannot make students immune to violence and victimization, but there are fair precautions taken against dangers, and for the most part, students have many resources to protect themselves from danger.
