Iowa State University is a safe campus. Choosing which college or university to attend is a major decision for students and their families. In addition to academic, financial, and geographical considerations, the issue of campus safety is a key ingredient in the decision-making process. Does the institution have policies and procedures in place to address crimes and other emergencies that occur on its campus?
The Iowa State University Police Department, in conjunction with multiple university entities and local law enforcement agencies, has been delegated the responsibility of compiling the information, preparing and distributing the annual security and fire safety report for the university by October 1st of each year. To satisfy this requirement, an e-mail notification is sent to all current students and employees with a direct link to the report. Printed copies are available upon request. To request a printed copy, contact the Iowa State University Police Department, Room 55 Armory Building, 2519 Osborn Drive, Ames, Iowa 50011 or call 515-294-4428
