The University of Wisconsin-Platteville maintains a safe and secure environment for learning, working, and personal growth, while providing assistance to a culturally enriched and diverse college population. The university has a police officer on duty 24 hours a day, in addition to providing emergency text message notifications, a Safe Walk program, and emergency management system.

Safe Walk

The Safe Walk program is a free service to all students and employees of the campus who want to be escorted anywhere on campus or within a two block distance off-campus. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To request a Safe Walk escort call 608.342.1584.

Text Notifications

UW-Platteville provides a text messaging notification system known as Pioneer Alerts for students and employees that notifies users of safety messages and weather related issues. Students will automatically be enrolled and can register up to three cell phones so that parents or guardians can receive these notifications as well.

Emergency Management

Education, training, and testing emergency procedures and crime prevention techniques are UW-Platteville's first priority and our best chance for eliminating or minimizing risks to the safety of students, employees, and guests. Tests on our emergency response plan and alarm systems are conducted throughout the year.

Rave Guardian Mobile App

The Rave Guardian app is now available free of charge to students and employees at UW-Platteville. The safety app includes crime tip submission, a safety timer, emergency services phone numbers, a campus directory, and an emergency call button. Rave Guardian is available on both iOS and Android devices.

Security and Fire Safety Report

Each year an annual security and fire safety report is available detailing the safety policies and crime statistics of UW-Platteville. The Clery Act requires all higher education institutions to have security and safety policies in place as well as identify staff, faculty and students as Campus Security Authorities who are required to report crimes.
