Living On Campus
Personal and Property Safety
Protective Measures for Personal Safety
The department of Housing and Real Estate Services publishes a list of suggestions for living on campus. This common sense approach involves defensive behaviors, including locking your room door, being aware of your surroundings at all times, and maintaining the integrity of the Card Access System (CACS) by never propping open an entryway door to your residence.
Crime Prevention Initiatives
There are several crime prevention initiatives on campus.
- Bike registration

Learn about RAD (Rape Aggression Defense System) and enroll in a class.
- Blue Light emergency phone service
Pick up any blue light phone located throughout campus and push the red button to report an emergency.
