ROAR gives a name to the many ways UCR Housing Services is actively providing for the safety and security of our communities and community members. The goals of ROAR are to increase awareness and empower individuals to take an active role in ensuring their own safety and that of others in their community.
You are not alone. There are many people and places to turn to for help, advice and support.
Stay alert. Be aware of your immediate environment at all times.
Increase your safety and security, and that of others, by following these steps:
Communicate anything that seems threatening. Inform people in a position to help.
Being prepared is your best defense. Learn how to respond to an active shooter incident
by taking the UCPD Crisis Response Training. You will learn how to use and implement RAIN (Respond, Assess, Isolate, and Notify)
and the “Run, Hide, Fight” response tactics effectively.

The on-duty Resident Director (RD) and Resident Advisor (RA) respond to complaints, questions, concerns and emergencies. They remain in or around buildings with emergency equipment and complete designated rounds during their on-duty times. Contact the RA On-Duty.
Housing Services is partnered with the UC Police, a multi-service agency that is located in the center of the UCR residential community. Services include law enforcement, police patrol, crime prevention, security and emergency response.
Most buildings and parking lots are outfitted with video surveillance and restricted access. Blue emergency call boxes and emergency phones can be found throughout our residential community.
