The University Arch is the traditional entrance to the University of Georgia (UGA) campus. It serves as a divider between North campus and downtown Athens. The Arch’s three columns symbolize “Wisdom, Justice, a nd Moderation.”

The University of Georgia annual Safe and Secure guide for the campus community has been produced by the University's police department, legal affairs office, student affairs division, human resources office, and public affairs office. It includes policies and statistics as required by federal law, including the University’s Policy on Alcohol and Other Drugs. The University of Georgia has published complete on-campus crime statistics since 1969.

Additionally, this report relates crimes as reported by the Athens-Clarke County Police at off-campus locations occupied or used primarily by students, and provides information about the number of reports of alcohol, drug and weapons violations referred to the UGA Office of Student Conduct during the previous three years. This information can also be downloaded as a PDF file.
