Safety Tips

  • Lock your doors at all times. Double check the door to ensure it is locked.
  • Always use your peephole before opening your door to visitors, even when you are expecting someone.
  • Never prop open any exterior doors.
  • Use lockable furniture for important items such as computers, tablets, documents, and other items.
  • Do not leave personal items like phones, purses, or bags alone in public areas, even for a short time.
  • Never share your ID with another person. Report lost IDs and keys immediately.
  • Avoid letting people without an ID enter the residence hall behind you.
  • Avoid walking alone at night. If you have to, contact DPS for an escort.
  • Text a friend to let them know you are leaving a location and to expect you to arrive in a specific amount of time.
  • Educate yourself on where the emergency call boxes are on campus and plan your walking route to always be near or know where the closest one is located.
