Even as safe as UAHuntsville is, vehicles can be broken into and their contents stolen.
Did you know that UAHuntsville police officers will check on your vehicle during your absence if you make them aware of your plans? You can do this by taking advantage of the “Safe Parking” initiative. You simply complete a short form (available through this link or at the Police Department) and park in the IMF garage.
