Security in the Residence Halls

IMPORTANT CAMPUS SAFETY TIPS:

  • Always lock your room door—even if you are just down the hall.
  • Do not let anyone you do not recognize into the residence hall.
  • Escort your guests at all times.
  • If you keep valuables in your room, keep them locked up.
  • Engrave all your valuables and appliances with your driver’s license number. Talk to the Campus Police about borrowing an engraver!
  • Never, under any circumstance, give your room key or student ID to anyone.
  • When studying on campus, always keep your belongings within view.
  • Always tell a friend or roommate where you are going—you don’t want people to worry about you unnecessarily.
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Avoid walking alone at night. Opt to walk with a group of friends or call Campus Police for an escort.
  • Walk in well lit areas.
  • Report anything suspicious to Campus Police immediately.
  • Know where the emergency call boxes are located on campus. There are 14 of them throughout campus.
  • Remember, alcohol and/or drugs are involved in 90% of campus crimes.
  • Cedar Crest Campus Police consists of 17 full and part time employees, so there is always someone on hand to help.
