Unfortunately, international students have been victims of crime while studying in the U.S. Most local incidents take place when walking or riding bicycles home from campus, alone, in the late evening or early hours of the morning. Students have reported a higher rate of incidents in the Northgate area than in other locations. Information about safety and the annual Texas A&M Campus Crime Report are located at University Police
ISS reminds all international students that it is critical to report all incidents to the police so that the entire community can remain safe
. If police don't have reports of incidents as they occur, they are not aware that there is a problem with safety in particular areas of the city. If they are not aware of incidents, they can't direct additional patrols to those areas and prevent additional crimes, harassment, or other incidents from taking place.
Please refer to the Reporting Incidents: Emergency & Non-Emergency
ISS for information on reporting incidents. If you are afraid to report an incident on your own or are unsure how to do so, please contact an ISS advisor for assistance at 979-845-1824
