Jeanne Clery Act/Crime Statistics

A Message from the President

The safety program at Montclair State University is a community effort for the general benefit of students, faculty, staff and visitors. We are partners in creating an environment that is safe and promotes learning, social interaction and leisure activities.

A university community, like a residential community, reflects the society at large. As in other places, crime does occur on university campuses. Montclair State University has taken many steps to create a secure campus. This brochure contains important information on crime prevention and is intended to increase your safety awareness.

Let us work together to increase awareness and deter crime in order to maintain a secure campus.

Susan A. Cole, President


Institutions of higher education are required to release certain crime statistics in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act federal legislation. These statistics include reported crimes at Montclair State University and include the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 for comparison. Total on campus crimes include any of the listed offenses that occurred on University property. Residence halls figures are a subset of the total on-campus crimes to enhance transparency for residents. Public property crimes include those locations adjacent to University property or as reported from other agencies. Off-campus statistics are counted for those crimes that may occur at off main campus University controlled sites, satellite locations and University sponsored instructional, athletic or social events located off campus grounds.
