The University of Houston participates in the My Safe Campus anonymous reporting program. In addition to, or instead of, reporting to our campus Department of Public Safety, you can make an anonymous report to My Safe Campus. The report will be forwarded on to the appropriate campus personnel and acted upon. You can check back through My Safe Campus to see how the report was resolved. Let's keep our campus safe.
