Security in Campus Housing

Safety and awareness are a priority for residence hall and apartment staff members. A variety of systems are in place to enhance the safety and security of on-campus residents.

Safety Measures
  • Residence hall building entry doors are equipped with electronic card-access control locks.
  • Access to residence hall areas where student rooms are located is restricted by electronic card access 24 hours a day.
  • Guests visiting residence halls must contact their host and be escorted by their host at all times while in the building. 
  • Most student apartment entry doors are equipped with deadbolt locks; selected apartments may be equipped with electronic card-access control locks.
  • Residence hall and apartment entry doors are equipped with door viewers that allow residents to identify visitors prior to opening their doors.
