SafetyK-State Campus Safety
In Sept. 2016, K-State was named one of the 50 safest large universities in America by College Choice. Students, faculty and staff share the responsibility of keeping our campus safe and together work hard to have resources in place. The campus community is guided by the Principles of Community, which describes the type of safe, supportive and caring community K-State seeks to foster.
Report unusual, threatening or dangerous behavior
Contact the K-State Police at 785-532-6412 or 911 in the case of an emergency. You can file a confidential report through the Silent Witness program.
Students can report suspicious behavior or concerns about fellow students to the Office of Student Life.
Receive emergency notifications
Sign up for K-State Alerts to notify you in case of an emergency. K-State Alerts will send you a text, email or voice message if there is an alert for campus. Alert beacons, police public address system and website postings will warn the community in the event of a campus emergency.
Utilize the security measures on campus
The K-State Police Department has many officers that patrol the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. K-State Police monitor numerous emergency phone call boxes located throughout the campus. Know the locations of the blue emergency phone boxes.
LiveSafe is an app for the K-State community which allows you to connect with campus safety resources, access safety maps and emergency information, and use peer-to-peer location tracking with group chat so friends can monitor and talk to you as you travel the campus.
Use Wildcat Walk to escort you on campus at night. Call 785-395-SAFE or push one of the blue light emergency buttons.
SafeRide provides a safe ride home for K-State students and guests who live within the designated city limits of Manhattan.
