  • Do not loan out your key or ID to anyone.
  • Don't compromise your safety for a roommate or friend who wants the door left unlocked.
  • If you lose your key or ID, report it immediately so locks can be changed and your lost Id can be suspended and a new one issued.
  • Report all suspicious persons, vehicles, and activities to your University Police department immediately.

  • Keep doors and windows locked. Report inoperable locks and latches to the appropriate maintenance personnel.

It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the University community. It is the duty of the administration to warn of possible "dangerous conditions" on or near the campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus; an "affirmative duty" exists to warn persons associated with the University of possible peril at the hands of some third party or parties.
