The Yale College campus is located in the center of a vibrant urban community, with all the arts, culture, and diversity of experience that city life brings. With city living, it is important to take steps to stay safe, and Yale invests in significant public safety resources.

The Clery Reports on Campus Public Safety contain three years’ worth of campus crime statistics and certain security policy statements, fire safety information, and information about where students, faculty, and staff should go to report crimes. The report uses federally mandated definitions concerning the locations and types of crimes in order to allow for comparisons across campuses.

Campus safety is the primary job of the Yale Police and Security Departments. Yale’s Public Safety website offers yearly reports on campus public safety.
