To determine the safest colleges in each state, we analyzed Uniform Crime Report and Campus Safety and Security data for schools that meet the following criteria:

  • 5,000+ students enrolled
  • Two- or four-year degrees offered
  • Public, private, or non-profit institution

For the three crime factors, the rate reported has been compared against the population per 1,000 people within the city limits. The lower the rate, the lower the number of crimes reported in that category:

  • Violent crimes per 1,000 people
  • Property crimes per 1,000 people
  • Hate and VAWA (crimes against women) crimes per 1,000 people

Interesting Findings

  • Houston is home to four out of the 10 schools ranked.
  • 3 Houston-ranked schools had the lowest hate/VAWA crime rate reported with an average of 3.6—Rice University, Texas Southern University, and University of Houston-Clear Lake.
  • Aside from ranking in the top ten schools for safety in Texas, two schools—Texas Christian University and Southern Methodist University—also ranked in our top 25 safest college campuses nationwide.
  • According to the 2020 Security Crime Report (with 2019 data), Abilene Christian University has had no instances of criminal homicide since before 2017.
