- Keep the doors and windows to residences locked at all times.
- Never sleep in an unlocked room.
- Don’t put your name and address on key rings.
- Don’t study in poorly lighted or secluded areas.
- Immediately notify the Security Office about obscene or harassing telephone calls or calls with no one on the line.
- Don’t go inside a room that appears to have been forcibly entered or entered by unauthorized persons. Notify the Department of Security. If already inside, students should avoid touching anything, as they may disturb evidence that is important to an investigation.
- If awakened by an intruder inside their room, students should not try to apprehend the individual. The person may be armed or may use something in the room as a weapon. If the intruder poses an immediate threat, get out of the room; if the intruder does not pose an immediate threat, common sense may dictate feigning sleep.
- If you see suspicious persons or vehicles on campus, you should immediately contact the Department of Security. Try to get the license plate number and a description of the vehicle.
- Students in campus housing will be fined and disciplined for blocking open entrances to residence halls or other College buildings. Defective locks on windows and doors must be reported.
