Traffic FAQ

What is the speed limit on campus?
The campus speed limits are 15 miles an hour on the roadways and 5 miles an hour in the parking lots. Trinity University is a high pedestrian campus and safety is our concern. Traffic control and enforcement is the responsibility of University Police Officers and violations, including moving violations, are subject to University Citations and/or Justice of the Peace Citations.

What should I do if I am involved in a traffic accident on campus?
Call 210-999-7000 or 210-999-7070 to report any accident on campus. Be sure to advise how many vehicles were involved, if anyone was injured and the location of the accident.

Arrest FAQ

What happens to someone who is arrested on campus?
When someone is placed under arrest he/she is transported to the City of San Antonio Magistrate’s Office, located at 401 South Frio Street, where they will appear before a magistrate. If a bond is set by the Magistrate that person may be transported to the Bexar County Jail by the City of San Antonio. If the person is a student of the University, he/she will be referred to the student judicial process according to the Student Code of Conduct. In some cases Peace Officers may issue a court appearance citation instead of a physical arrest. All cases involving students are reviewed by the Dean of Students for referral to the Student Conduct Board. Officers exercise professionalism and discretion in reviewing each incident. Officers are university officials and submit incident reports that are forwarded to the Dean of Students when a rule and regulation offense has occurred.

Crime Prevention FAQ

How safe will I be on campus?
Being safe means different things to different people. Some people measure safety by the amount of crime on campus. Typically, most university and college campuses experience less crime than their surrounding communities. However, there are no guarantees in being absolutely safe. The University Police Department has a comprehensive crime prevention program that assists community members to reduce their risk of becoming a victim of crime.

What should I do if I think I see suspicious activity?
It is always recommended that suspicious activity be reported immediately to the University Police Department by calling 210-999-7070. Be prepared to describe the activity you witnessed and describe the person(s) or vehicle(s) involved. You do not have to leave your name and number but it may be helpful if the information you provide leads to an arrest or if you would like to be contacted. We encourage the University community to take proactive measures to keep an eye out for crime at all times.
