Campus Security Report

Campus Security Report

The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.

Please visit The Princeton Review’s page on campus safety for additional resources: http://www.princetonreview.com/safety

The Princeton Review publishes links directly to each school's Campus Security Reports where available. Applicants can also access all school-specific campus safety information using the Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education: http://ope.ed.gov/security

Transportation

Types of Transportation Available to Campus
Situated approximately 10 miles from campus is the Pocatello Regional Airport. Call the Office of Enrollment Planning to make arrangements. Taxis are available for transportation from the airport to campus; call 208-282-1115.

Driving Instructions to Campus
From I-15, take the Clark St. exit and turn west into town on Clark St. to 8th Ave. Turn left on 8th Ave. and proceed to the stop light at 8th and Martin Luther King Jr. Way, then turn right.

Local Accommodations
Accommodations in Pocatello offer convenience and value, but nothing out of the ordinary. One very basic, quite inexpensive hotel is situated just across the street from the university. Frequented regularly by university visitors, the Econolodge (835 S. 5th Ave.; 208-233-0451) offers special rates. If you're craving hustle and bustle, you might try the Red Lion (2055 Pocatello Creek; 208-233-2200), a 5-minute drive away. It has restaurants, an indoor pool, a weight room, a sauna, and evening entertainment in the lounge. Rooms are only slightly more expensive than the choice listed above. About 5 miles away is a Holiday Inn (1399 Bench Rd.; 208-237-1400) with an indoor pool, miniature golf, ping pong, a whirlpool and sauna, and fitness center privileges. Ameritel (1440 Bench Rd.; 208-234-7500) has a 24-hour pool, hot tub, and exercise room. It offers a deluxe continental breakfast and free HBO.
