Welcome to the MSU Safe Place website!

MSU Safe Place is a program of Center for Survivors that addresses relationship violence and stalking. We are located on the campus of Michigan State University and serve students, faculty, staff, and their spouses/partners as well as non-affiliated members of Ingham County. We are committed to providing shelter and other services in an environment that is safe and supportive to all identities, including persons in same-sex relationships, identifying as non-binary or trans, with disabilities, and from various racial and ethnic backgrounds.

We provide advocacy, shelter, counseling, support groups, safety planning, information and referrals to survivors of relationship violence and stalking. All support services are free and confidential. Additionally, we work to increase awareness about relationship violence and stalking through community education, outreach efforts, expert witness training, professional trainings and consultations.
