Q: How safe is the campus?

Answer:
During the Fall and Spring semesters, there are approximately 20,000 total students, 2,000 faculty/staff members, and thousands of visitors on campus. Tyler Junior College is the largest junior/community college in the state of Texas. The city of Tyler borders the entire campus. There are no physical barriers which prohibit entry into the campus and no checkpoints to contend with. Unfortunately, like any other college campus, crimes do occur.

A majority of the property and personal crimes could be classified as "crimes of opportunity."  The best advice is to adhere to good common sense, trust your instincts, and simply be aware of what is going on around you at all times.

Campus Police operates 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year.
