University Police Department

University Police Department (UNR PD) is stationed right on the University of Nevada, Reno campus in the Fitzgerald Student Services building. Registered students, faculty and staff members will receive emergency information by text or email through Emergency Alerts. Emergency information will also be posted to the UNR PD Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites. UNR PD strives to maintain our campus as a safe place to live, study and work by embracing the "Community Oriented Policing" philosophy, which includes open and honest communication between the Police Department and the population we serve.
