Safety/Security in Residence Halls

A combination of security measures is provided in the residence halls. The University Police Department regularly patrols the entire campus including residence halls areas. They are available to assist you when necessary.

All buildings are locked 24 hours per day and equipped with card access security. Your ID card is your access into your residence hall. Also, smoke detectors have been installed in each room and a centrally located fire alarm system is installed in every building to monitor the potential for fire. Several buildings are equipped with sprinklers in case of fire. Chemical fire extinguishers are available in every hallway in case of fire. Should an emergency happen, emergency procedures are provided for you on the back of your residence hall room door.

The University Police Department has two programs in place to provide additional security for students.  They offer an on-line Property Registration Program and a Silent Witness Program.  For additional information and access to those programs, click on the following link:
