Welcome to the MSU Safe Place website!  MSU Safe Place is a program that addresses relationship violence and stalking.  We are located on the campus of Michigan State University and serve students, faculty, staff, their spouses/partners and non-affiliated members in the Greater Lansing Area. 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.

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 consultation.
