I feel pretty safe on campus. I do have some evening classes that don’t finish until 9:00 or 10:00 pm, but I always feel okay — even when it’s dark… [T]he emergency telephones around campus do look a bit run down so I don’t know how reliable they would be if I ever needed one.

I definitely feel safe on campus. I play on the varsity basketball team and, although our practices end late, I’m not too concerned about walking by myself. I feel comfortable on campus.

I haven’t experienced any problems on campus. I definitely feel safer walking through campus with a friend, and if I’m walking late at night I usually stick to the main roads.

I generally feel comfortable and safe on campus. Most of my classes finish late at night, but I’m never worried about walking through campus… I haven’t really seen any difference in the last few years in terms of safety on campus, either.

I feel safe on campus, even at night. The recent attack of a professor doesn’t really rattle me too much… I don’t know anyone who’s had problems on campus, really — I haven’t had any in the four years I’ve been here.

I definitely feel safe, and people are very nice on campus. I have to come through campus after my late classes, but I haven’t had any problems. I usually have someone to walk with, and, compared to other places, I think the campus is very safe.

Apart from the racoons late at night, I usually feel safe on campus. I have late classes that don’t finish until 9:00 or 10:00 pm, but I always feel comfortable when I’m walking home. I’m not too worried about the attack on the professor – there will always be crazy people and that kind of attack could really happen anywhere.

The U of T campus definitely feels safer than my own campus back in Paris — I always feel safe when I’m walking through campus. I don’t know of anyone who has had to contact the authorities about problems concerning their safety on campus.
