The University is concerned about the safety and security of all students residing in on-campus housing. All access doors to residence halls are secured 24 hours a day. Each residence hall or on-campus apartment has its own access door with a lock that residents are urged to secure at all times.
University Police recommends that all students lock their door every time they leave their room.
Lock your door:
- When you leave your room for only a few minutes.
- When you are gone for the day or overnight.
- When you are inside the room.
- Basically, at all times!
Auxiliary Police employs students to patrol the exterior areas of residence halls from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m., Monday through Friday and 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m., Saturday and Sunday. The Auxiliary Police aid in the safety and security of the students in the residence halls by:
- Monitoring the doors to make sure they are operating appropriately.
- Helping assure that only residents and escorted guests enter residence halls.
- Monitoring persons in the area and reporting any suspicious or criminal activity to the University Police.
- Monitoring access control computers for any door alarms.
