Residents are reminded to:
- Always lock your door; even when you’re sleeping or just briefly away from your room or suite.
- Do not allow strangers to enter your room, suite or complex.
- When entering the building, do not let unknown individuals “tailgate;” ask who they are visiting and offer to call Public Safety.

- Report lost / stolen / malfunctioning keys or locks to the staff at Residence Life or to the Community Assistant (CA).
- Do not leave your keys lying around in your room when you are not there. Do not leave messages on your door about when you will be returning to your room.
- Tell a roommate or friend if you are planning to be away overnight or for a few days.
- Secure your valuables and engrave expensive items with identifying information.
- Always lock your doors and windows at night, especially if you reside on the first or second floors.
- Do not leave your identification, keys, wallets, checkbooks, or other valuables in open view.
