Security

FOR REASONS OF SAFETY AND SECURITY, ALL STUDENT ROOM DOORS AND ALL SUITE OR APARTMENT DOORS SHOULD BE KEPT LOCKED AT ALL TIMES.

The University assumes no responsibility for the loss or theft of property. However, all such losses should be reported to the Area Coordinator and to the Campus Police immediately so that every attempt can be made to recover the property.

It is against University policy to prop open residence hall entry doors.

It is against local, state and federal regulations to prop open a fire-rate door.

The University is not responsible for loss of or damage to personal property; therefore, any item left in a room is at the student`s own risk. This includes periods when the University is not in session, i.e. vacation periods. Any incidents of theft or loss, etc. should be reported immediately to the Area Coordinator and Campus Police so that an attempt can be made to recover the items and apprehend the person(s) responsible. It is strongly recommended that all students carry personal property insurance to protect themselves against loss of or damage to their personal property while in the residence hall rooms. In most cases, this insurance can be provided as part of a guardian`s homeowner insurance policy. In all other cases, a separate policy should be maintained.

All room windows should be closed and locked when students are not in the rooms. Window stops are installed in all hall windows for safety and security reasons. Students are NOT permitted to remove window stops. Students who remove the security stops may be billed for their repair/replacement and may face judicial action.
