Earlier this morning, CU Boulder alerted our campus community about a reported sexual assault in a campus residence hall.

CU Boulder Police (CUPD) are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Kevin Brough at (303) 492-4469.

Safety tips

Students should note CUPD’s top safety tips, including:

  • If you see an emergency occurring, or you or someone else is in danger, call or text 9-1-1.
  • Always use the buddy system.
  • Be an effective bystander. Don’t ignore situations that seem problematic or indicators that someone is trying to take advantage of a person who is vulnerable.
  • When walking, be aware of your surroundings. Avoid distractions like looking at your phone. Walk in well-lit areas.
  • Close and lock your doors and windows to help prevent burglaries and assaults.
  • All residence hall residents should be conscientious about any strangers trying to enter buildings without an escort or "tailgating," entering residence halls with a group of students.
  • Doors leading to living areas in residence halls remain locked 24 hours a day and visitors must be escorted by a hall resident. Do not prop open doors.
