Statistics show that in comparison to other large college campuses, UD is a relatively safe environment. Nonetheless, individuals in our community still must take personal responsibility for their own safety by being aware and alert.

Newark, Delaware is generally safe, even at night, although it is recommended to walk in groups of at least two and avoid unlit side streets in the late evening hours. The most prevalent problem is petty theft. Illegal entry and theft of valuables from residences on campus and in Newark can occur, but you can greatly reduce your chances of becoming a victim of this crime by following some simple guidelines: always lock your doors and windows when leaving, even if just for a few minutes, and do not leave your belongings unattended in public places. If you need to travel to a location outside of Newark in the evening, a member of the program staff will be happy to assist you so that you do not have to travel alone in an unfamiliar area late at night.

The Institute for Global Studies can, upon request, store your passports and any other personal belongings in a safe during your stay. We suggest that you do not bring anything particularly valuable, but if you do it is recommended that you insure these items before you leave home as neither the University of Delaware nor the U. S. Government can accept any responsibility for any lost or stolen items. Therefore, you may want to photograph and record the serial numbers of your valuables before leaving for the United States.
