Campus Safety

The University of Wyoming Police Department (UWPD) provides comprehensive law enforcement and security services to all components of the University including the academic campus, and other properties owned or controlled by the University.  The University Police Officers are commissioned under Wyoming State Statute and have the full range of police authorities granted any peace officer including power to arrest, on property owned by or under the control of the University of Wyoming, including adjacent public streets and sidewalks. University Security Officers work closely with our police officers in constantly patrolling University properties and assisting employees and visitors in accessing University facilities. The UWPD operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is located at 1426 East Flint, Laramie, Wyoming 82071. 

Campus safety is the responsibility of all members of the university community.  Faculty/staff, students, and guests are encouraged to report crimes and other concerning behavior or observations promptly.  The Dean of Students Office, Student Conduct, The STOP Violence Program, and the Office of Diversity and Employment Practices are available to provide further information.

A full description of campus safety, crime statistics, and educational programs designed to increase safety on campus is available in the 2014 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report of the University of Wyoming.  To access the report, go to
