Campus Housing Safety

We care about your safety. Follow these guidelines for safety in campus residence halls.

  • Don’t let others tailgate when entering residence halls and report immediately anyone whom you see helping others tailgate.
  • Do not prop open any residence’s exterior door.
  • When in the residence hall never leave your room unlocked, even while taking a shower or making a short trip down the hall.
  • Refrain from posting notes on your door informing others that no one is in the room.
  • Don’t leave valuables, such as your wallet, checkbook, or jewelry, in open view.
  • Keep an accurate inventory of your possessions. Engraving tools may be borrowed from Security for inscribing your driver’s license number.
  • Keys should not be attached to university identification.
  • Take care of your keys. Don’t give anyone a chance to duplicate them.
  • Be a good neighbor; look for suspicious activity or people in the residence hall.
