Clery Act Safety Reports

Colleges and universities that participate in federal student financial assistance programs must publish an Annual Security Report each year by October 1st.

The Annual Security Report includes statistics for the most recent three-year period concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Northwestern University, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The Annual Security Report also includes institutional policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other safety and security matters. 

A hard copy of the University's Annual Security Report(s) is available upon request from the University's Compliance Office by emailing or by calling 847-467-6171.
