Safety Initiatives in Residence

Practice makes Perfect. There are several proactive programs in place to ensure the on-going safety of resident students. These include initiatives such as:
  • Weekly fire tests and randomized building evacuation drills to evaluate preparedness
  • Nightly Residence Life Staff coverage rounds between the hours of 9pm to 8am
  • Emergency Pager number available for residents during Residence Life Staff coverage
  • 24/7 Professional Residence Managers on-call to respond to emergency/crisis situations
  • An extensive Guest/Escort Policy based on accountability, permission, and courtesy
  • Annual Inter-Residence Council Safety Audit completed in conjunction with Housing&Conference Services
  • Clearly defined Emergency Procedures which are posted and covered with residents in September
  • Building access points restricted after 10pm to streamline traffic patterns to main building entrances
