Creating a Safe Campus

It’s our mission to make the Mines campus the safest campus in Colorado.

Bicycle Safety

Be safe when you ride, wear a helmet and secure your bike when it’s parked.

Mines Emergency Alert System

Mines Emergency Alerts keep you informed in the event of a campus emergency via cell phone text and voice messages, and on-campus email and phone messages. Students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in the Mines Emergency Alert System.

The Mines Police Department is dedicated to maintaining an environment that is safe and allows our educational mission to occur without disruption.

We are committed to enhancing the quality of life of the campus community and primarily responsible for developing services, programs and strategies for maintaining a safe campus.

It’s our mission to make the Mines campus the safest campus in Colorado.
