Security & Safety
University Housing residence halls and apartments have security coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. An officer is assigned to each area nightly from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am. At all other times, officers patrol the residence halls and will respond to any request for assistance.
There are "blue light" emergency telephones all over campus, with many near residence halls and Northwood Community Apartments. Lifting the receiver automatically places a call to the Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS) Dispatch Center. Help is immediately dispatched for emergency calls. Non-emergency calls for assistance are handled in the order they are received.
