|Report An Incident|
Incidents that occur on UST property, including crimes, health emergencies, fires, or other similar occurrences, should be reported immediately to the Security Department. If a serious crime or medical emergency occurs, call 911 first and then notify the Security Department. Crimes, which represent a continuing threat, will be reported to the campus community. Persons should report sex offenses to the Security Department and the Houston Police Department. Security Department personnel will assist a victim in reporting the incident to the Houston Police Department if a request is made.
Prompt reporting ensures that evidence is not destroyed and increases the probability of suspect apprehension. Incidents may be reported in person to any Security Department personnel, or by calling Ext. 3888 on campus, (713) 525-3888 off campus. For the convenience of the campus community, emergency telephones with direct access to the Security Department are located throughout the campus.
All reported incidents will be investigated and when necessary, referred to The Harris County District Attorney's Office for prosecution. Victim counseling and mental health services are available through UST Counseling Services by calling Ext. 3162 on campus, (713) 525-3162 off campus. If you require UST Counseling services after normal business hours or on weekends, you may call the Security Department and we will page the counselor on call. If a student, staff member, or faculty member is sexually assaulted on campus, the university will pay for a sexual assault examination. This examination is critical for the successful prosecution of the perpetrator.
