University Police Policies: Access to University Facilities
Most university buildings and facilities, other than student residence halls, are accessible to members of the university community, their guests and visitors during normal hours of business, and during designated hours on weekends and holidays, depending on the wide variety of events and activities taking place outside the normal business hours.
Academic, administrative and recreational buildings are locked nightly at the conclusion of activities and classes. Unauthorized persons are not permitted in the buildings during these times. Individuals needing access after hours can request special access from the department. University police maintain a list of individuals who receive permission to be admitted after hours. Proper identification must be presented to them for admittance to closed buildings.
We have adopted a community-oriented policing approach in all campus buildings on all shifts to provide high officer visibility and access. These regular foot patrols act as a deterrent to criminal activity and enable students, staff and visitors to get to know the officers.
