The following advice will make it a safer place to live and can help you protect your property.
  • Lock your door, even if you think you will only be gone a short time.
  • Lock your door when you are asleep or when your door is closed. Don’t leave your door unlocked just because you think your roommate doesn’t have a key,
  • Do not prop open residence hall entrance or fire doors.
  • Be aware of unfamiliar persons in or around college buildings or parking areas. Report any such people to the Campus Safety Department immediately.
