Top 10 Safest College Campuses in Texas

College-Bound Texans: Consider These Campus Safety Stats

To help future college students make safety-driven decisions, the team here at Your Local Security runs an annual report* on the safest college campuses nationally—and sometimes we report state highlights too. Check out the top 10 standouts among safe Texas campuses below.

Methodology

To evaluate the safety of Texas college campuses, we tallied campus hate crime and violence against women (VAWA) rates per the U.S. Department of Education’s Campus Safety and Security report. We also tallied violent and property crime rates in each college’s hometown per the FBI Uniform Crime Report, to give relevant context about the city where students may live and work while attending school.

We limited our results to 41 Texas colleges to achieve more statistically reliable results. The requirements for inclusion were a total enrollment of at least 5,000 students, two- or four-year degrees offered, and available crime data.

Finally, we scored and ranked each college, weighing campus hate crimes and VAWA at 80%, citywide violent crime at 15%, and citywide property crime at 5% of the total score. City crime trends were deemphasized to avoid holding colleges responsible for crimes outside their jurisdiction.

Interesting Findings

  • Fourteen of the 41 Texas schools we analyzed reported zero incidences of hate crimes or violence against women (also known as VAWA).
  • Of the 29 Texas hometowns for these 41 schools, Houston has the highest violent crime rate and the third-highest property crime rate.
  • The FBI and U.S. Department of Education compile these numbers using self-reported data by schools and cities nationwide, so their reports may not show the whole picture. Before deciding where to study, you may want to research the crime trends and safety resources specific to the schools and college towns you’re interested in.
