Parents of Sponsored Students

The University of Minnesota is located in the heart of the Twin Cities and is one of the largest schools in the United States. Safety and security are among the University’s top priorities. Several resources, including emergency notification systems via SMS and email, on campus walking escort services, emergency phone system and security cameras are just a few examples of measures already in place to enhance the safety and security of students.

Alerts about crimes happening on or near campus are sent via email. The alert system is a part of the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act” (informally known as the "Clery Act") and ensures students, faculty and staff can take measures to protect themselves in the event of crime trends that affect the campus community.
