Campus Safety Tips  Print
Learn the best route between your residence hall and your classes and activities. Take the safest route, not the fastest route.
Travel in groups of two or more at night and always walk in well-lit, heavily traveled areas.
Stay on the part of the sidewalk that is farthest away from shrubs, dark doorways, and alleys.
Share your class schedule with friends and family, effectively creating a buddy system.
When you go out, let someone know where you are going and when you plan to be back.
Know where the emergency telephones are located (See “Emergency Telephones.”)
Use the shuttle buses after dark. After the shuttle buses have stopped running, call the Safety Service for ride. (See “Safety Service.”)
Wherever you are, stay alert to your surroundings and the actions of people around you.
Follow your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, change directions, go to an emergency phone or into a public building, or call university security.
Do not leave your belongings unattended, not even for a few minutes.
Avoid displaying large amounts of cash or other tempting targets such as jewelry or expensive clothing.
Always lock your bike or rent a bike locker to store your bike.
Park in well-lit, well-traveled areas of the parking lot.
Memorize the phone number of the University Security (03-79673582).
Report any suspicious persons to your Hall Officer or the Campus Security Hotline immediately.
