The following safety tips are offered to UNH students, faculty, staff and visitors to the Durham campus. While a series of burglaries has prompted us to post these safety tips on the Web, this information is provided to all new and returning students at the start of each new academic year.

  • Lock doors.
  • If you live off campus, keep outside lights on all night.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Use the UNH Security Escort Service.
  • If you see suspicious activity, call UNH or Durham Police.
  • Use Blue Light phones, and safety phones, located in all UNH building entrances.
  • Walk in groups.
  • Stay on well-lit paths.
  • Remember that when you dial 911, the call goes directly to the UNH Dispatch Center on the Durham campus.

    The following is a resource list for students, faculty and staff:
  • UNH Security Escort Service, Janetos House, 862-1427
  • UNH Dispatch Center, 911
