The University Police Department prepares the annual security report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by UMass Lowell; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. This report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters.

This report is prepared in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, the Dean of Students Office (including Judicial Affairs) and the Office of Residence Life. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act.

Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the UMass Lowell Police Department, designated campus officials (including, but not limited to directors, deans, department heads, judicial affairs, advisers to students/student organizations, athletic coaches) and local law enforcement agencies.

Each year, an email notification is made to all enrolled students, faculty and staff. This notification provides information on how to access the Annual Security Report online; employees who do not have a campus email address receive a postcard through campus mail, which provides similar information. All UMass Lowell employees receive notification regarding how to access this report online with their paycheck.

Copies of this report may also be obtained at the University Police Department located at 175 Cabot Street, 1st floor, or by calling the UMass Lowell Police Department by phone at 978-934-2384. All prospective employees may obtain a copy from the Human Resources Office in the Wannalancit Business Center, room 301 or by calling 978-934-3560.
