Off-Campus Student Criminal Activity

When a Ball State University student is involved in an off-campus criminal offense, or when criminal activity occurs at off-campus housing facilities operated by recognized student organizations, University Police may conduct a criminal investigation or assist in criminal investigations conducted by other law enforcement agencies. University Police officers patrol residential and business areas surrounding the campus but also have full police powers throughout Muncie and Delaware County. Students cited or arrested for off-campus criminal activity in the Muncie area, if identified as students, are routinely reported to Student Rights and Community Standards for adjudication under the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
