Crime Prevention

It is a priority of Oklahoma State University to provide a safe and secure environment for students to live and learn, employees to work and guests to visit. Unfortunately crimes of all types do occur on a college campus.
The OSU Police Department investigates and makes public the nature of crimes, the quantity and how they are investigated.

What do I do if...

If you are experiencing an emergency, are a witness or a victim to a crime in progress or one that has just occurred, call 911
If you are a victim of a crime, you are encouraged to make a report about the incident to the OSU Police or appropriate law enforcement agency.
Victims of a serious crime can request additional support like ministers, counselors, the university’s sexual assault victim’s advocate or a domestic violence representative during or after making the report. 

Security and Access Control

Residence halls have open access between the hours of 6 a.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. During non-open access hours, all residence hall doors are locked except the front desk entrance. Individual rooms should be locked at all times to ensure safety and outside doors should never be propped open.
It is the policy of Oklahoma State University to lock the doors of classroom buildings and others when not in use. However, some buildings on campus are rarely locked since students study and work on projects during various hours of the day and night. Please keep individual offices locked since unrestricted access to a building could be possible.
