Clery Act and Campus Security

Texas State University, as an institution that receives student aid assistance, follows federal law (the Clery Act of 1990) by distributing an annual campus security report, Campus Watch.

The report includes descriptions of campus crime prevention programs, procedures for reporting crimes, and information about the number and frequency of crimes reported to the University Police Department during the last three years.

It also provides Texas State’s policies for campus security and law enforcement related to sexual offenses, liquor law violations, and controlled substance offenses.

The Campus Watch report covers both San Marcos and the Round Rock Campus.

In addition to publishing crime statistics, the Clery Act requires Texas State University to provide timely warnings to the campus community of certain crimes reported to the University Police Department or local law enforcement which may be considered a threat to the campus community.

The Campus Watch report is also available in the Offices of Undergraduate Admissions, the Graduate College, Human Resources, and the University Police Department. To pick up a copy of the report, visit UPD in the Nueces Building, 615 North LBJ Drive, San Marcos, TX 78666, or call 512.245.2890 to have a copy mailed to you free of charge.
