Report Suspicious or Criminal Activity On Campus
To report suspicious or criminal activity or other emergencies, dial 911 from a campus landline or 702-895-3669 from your cellphone. There are also emergency telephones located throughout the Maryland Parkway, Paradise, and Shadow Lane campuses that connect you directly to the UNLV Police Dispatch Center. These telephones automatically register your location when you push the button to activate the phone. Current emergency phone locations can be viewed online for both the Maryland Parkway campus and for the Shadow Lane campus.
Possession and Use of Weapons
All university police officers carry service weapons while on duty. By Nevada Revised Statute 202.265, only police department personnel may carry or possess firearms or any other weapons on campus.
Residence Hall Security
Access to residence halls is controlled by card-activated access systems that restrict entrance to only those authorized to enter. Additionally, each residence hall is staffed with a resident coordinator and numerous resident assistants, usually one per floor.
