Welcome back, Buckeyes. Ohio State's Department of Public Safety recognizes that safety has many different meanings and may include someone's physical security, their overall well-being, having a sense of belonging and more. With that in mind, we are unveiling an updated and more comprehensive safety resources webpage that includes apps, classes and other tools from across the university and nearby neighborhoods.
Our police and security officers are here to help, so please add our number to your phone. Report on-campus crimes or suspicious behavior to University Police (614-292-2121) and off-campus incidents to Columbus Police (614-645-4545) or local law enforcement. Always dial 9-1-1 in emergencies.
Your safety is our top priority. Please take a moment to learn more about how to report a crime, where to go for support services and how to access tools that can enhance your safety.
