K-State Campus Safety

Students, faculty and staff share the responsibility of keeping our campus safe and together work hard to have resources in place. The university community is guided by the Principles of Community, which describes the type of safe, supportive and caring community K-State seeks to foster.

Report unusual, threatening or dangerous behavior

Students can report suspicious behavior or concerns about fellow students to the Office of Student Life.

Receive emergency notifications

Sign up for K-State Alerts to notify you in case of an emergency. K-State Alerts will send you a text, email or voice message if there is an alert for your campus. Alert beacons, police public address system and website postings will warn the community in the event of a campus emergency.

Utilize the security measures on your campus

K-State Police

The K-State Police Department (Manhattan) and Campus Safety and Security Office (Salina) both have many officers that patrol their campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. K-State Police monitor numerous emergency phone call boxes located throughout our Manhattan and Polytechnic campuses. Find the locations of the blue emergency phone boxes on your campus:

The Olathe campus is served by its own security staff.


LiveSafe is an app for the K-State community which allows you to connect with university safety resources, access safety maps and emergency information, and use peer-to-peer location tracking with group chat so friends can monitor and talk to you as you travel the campus.
