Security in Residence Halls
We have coed residence halls that are supervised by a 24-hour housing staff throughout the academic year. Housing personnel are available by paging 644-6754. Housing supervisors are available 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during weekends, campus breaks, and holidays. Campus security officers patrol campus facilities, grounds, and parking lots. A full-time maintenance/custodian conducts regular facility inspections with concern for needed repairs, safety, security, and cleanliness.
Housing personnel review each of the policies within the Residence Life Manual with all residents. The Residence Life Manual is available on the college's web site. Within each residence hall, visitors must sign a guest registry and document when they arrive and leave the facility. At all times they must be accompanied by a resident.
The three-story residence halls are unlocked during the hours of regular school activity. The front desk of the residence hall is staffed to monitor the entrance of the building. Desk attendants are trained to handle questions including security or health needs. In-room visitation hours are from 7:30 a.m. To 12:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. To 3:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Visitation hours for the public areas within the residence hall are from 7:30 a.m. To 3:00 a.m., seven days a week.
The residence halls are locked 24-hours a day during the weekends, College breaks, and holidays. An entry door key is given to each resident of the hall. Guests have access to a campus phone in the foyer of the residence hall where they can call a resident to request permission to visit when the entry doors are locked.
There are two eight-plex apartment buildings. Each building has a 24-hour security lock system to provide additional protection for the residents. Only residents with an issued key can unlock the entry door to an apartment building. Visitors have access to an electronic speaker which allows them to call the unit they wish to visit. The resident can speak to the visitor and unlock the door from within their apartment unit. Visitation hours for the apartments are from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. To 3:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
