Residence Hall Safety
Your residence hall is your home away from home, and it’s important to work with your fellow students to keep it safe. Some suggestions:
- Carry your student ID and room key with you.
- Lock your door and take your key every time you leave your room.
- Never give your keys or your student ID to anyone, even your best friends.
- Do not prop open any doors in your residence hall complex.
- Do not let strangers into the hall or into your room.
- Report suspicious people in the hall immediately to the hall desk, any hall staff member, or to University Police.
- Escort your guests at all times.
- Know the telephone numbers for your resident assistant and hall director.
- Close and lock first- and second-floor windows when you leave your room.
- Do not hide door keys outside and do not loan keys to friends.
- Do not leave valuables such as your ID, wallets, music players, or cell phones for all to see.
Each residence hall has an electronic card access system that limits entry to only residents of the hall. In addition, restrooms on all female floors have ID card readers that allow only residents of that floor to enter the facilities. If you have a guest, you must accompany your guest at all times. After midnight, all guests must register at the community check station and have a photo ID.
