Safety

Hospital Security - Ext. 4-4211

Police, Fire, Rescue - 9 + 911

Although we make every effort to ensure safety and security throughout our campus, certain common-sense measures should be kept in mind:

  • Don't leave valuables such as your wallet, checkbook, jewelry, or keys in open view.

  • Mark easily stolen items like portable TV's, radios, pocket organizers, and computers and keep a list of serial numbers, model numbers and descriptions.

  • Lock doors and windows when going out, and never prop doors open when entering/exiting the dormitory building - it is too easy for someone paying attention to sneak in.

  • Don't store large amounts of money or credit cards in your dormitory room.

  • Take care of your keys; do not lend them to anyone.

  • Use the "buddy system" - go out with a friend, especially if you're headed for a late night snack or study break.

  • Walk purposefully. Look confident. Watch where you are going. Avoid shortcuts through isolated areas. Be alert to your surroundings. If you still have concerns while on campus, call Security at 4-4211 for an escort.

  • If entrance/hallway lights are burned out after working hours, report them to engineering immediately at Ext. 4-2232.

  • If you see unusual activity or someone loitering, call Security immediately at Ext. 4-4211.

Driving/Parking Safety

  • Lock all doors and close all windows when leaving your car.

  • Park in well-lighted areas and try not to walk alone to/from parking areas at night.

  • Have keys ready as you approach your car. Check car for intruders before entering and lock door immediately after getting into your car.

  • If you must store valuables in your car, store them out of sight (preferably locked in trunk).
