Stay Safe at LSU
Stay Safe LSU is a university initiative dedicated to the safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff.
Use caution walking, biking, and driving on campus. Use crosswalks and learn pedestrian and cycling rules. Don't be distracted by mobile devices. Follow these tips for securing your personal safety and personal property.
Ride Share Safety
Use caution and follow these tips when using a ride share service.
Take a shuttle at night
Instead of walking around campus at night, take LSU’s free shuttle known as Campus Transit. It’s an on-demand service that runs from 5 p.m. to midnight, 7 days a week. You can even schedule your ride via the TransLoc Rider app.
If you see something, say something
If you see something suspicious on campus, please report it! We want to hear from you, and you can report suspicious behavior anonymously. Call LSU Police at 225-578-3231 or if it’s an emergency, dial 911.
LSU Police and the Student Health Center offer Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Classes for women. RAD is a 12-hour personal safety course. LSU Police also offers the Equalizer Self Defense Program throughout the year or upon request for groups.
Active Shooter Training

If you have not yet registered your mobile phone to receive emergency text messages from LSU, please do so at MyLSU by clicking on “Personal Preferences” and “Emergency Contacts.” While there, please fill out your emergency contact information, too.
Download Free Safety App
The LSU SHIELD app is designed to help you report emergencies or crimes, receive help from police, or check on friends to ensure they’ve arrived safely at their destinations. Students and employees should download the free app. The app will ask for various information, not all of which is required. But the more information entered, the better the app works for users.
