University Housing Security is a priority at Georgia State University. The Georgia State University Police Department (GSUPD) and University Housing staff members are available 24 hours a day to make sure students feel safe in their home-away-from-home. All residence halls have controlled access and are equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.
Georgia State University is proud to have been a part of downtown Atlanta for 100 years. The university’s proactive approach to safety and crime prevention has succeeded in minimizing criminal activity on campus and promoting greater awareness and security.
Through our commitment to a strong internal police department, and in coordination with our downtown partners, our goal is to do everything possible to ensure the safety and security of the people who live, work and visit at Georgia State University.
