Campus Safety Tips

1

Lock your door

Lock your door whenever you leave your room or your car, regardless of the length of time you plan to be gone. A surprising number of thefts occur when you leave for only a few minutes.

2

Walk in lighted areas and avoid isolated locations

When you are on campus at night, only walk in lighted areas. If possible, walk with a friend and avoid taking shortcuts. The shortest route is not always the safest. Know the location of the campus emergency phones and if you have concerns about your safety or security, use the Public Safety escort service.

3

Do not leave latched doors open

Do not prop open latched or locked doors. If you find a door propped open, secure it.

4

Report thefts and safety concerns

If anything of yours is stolen, report the theft or unsafe circumstance to Public Safety and Police Services immediately. 

5

Know the emergency phone locations

The blue light emergency phones connect you directly to a dispatcher at Public Safety. Know the closest emergency phone to your location at all times. View the map.

6

Have your keys ready

Have your keys ready to unlock your vehicle when you are walking to your car.
