Off-Campus Safety

  • Develop a “buddy” system with neighbors and friends. Be alert for any suspicious activity at your property or in your neighborhood.
  • Always lock your door. Never hide a key under the doormat or any other easily accessible places at your off-campus resident.
  • Ask for proper ID from maintenance people, landlords or strangers. Don’t be afraid to ask - legitimate staff carry them!
  • Don’t let strangers into the building or allow them to follow you in.
  • Avoid walking alone at night, but if you must, stay in well-lighted , open areas.
  • Report all strangers seen wandering or loitering outside of your property to the police.
