Safety Warning from University Police

There have a rash of robberies targeting Lehigh University students in south Bethlehem over the past week.

Due to the fact that there are a number of DeSales University students who live off our campus and near the location of these robberies,

University Police would like to offer the following safety tips;

  • Always be aware of your surroundings
  • Travel in groups whenever possible
  • Stay away from alleys and dark areas between buildings
  • Alcohol affects your senses and can increase your vulnerability
  • If you suspect that you are being followed, call 911 to alert police
  • Report any suspicious activity to Bethlehem Police at (610)865-7187 or Lehigh University Police at (610)758-4200
