Security and Access to Campus Facilities
The University community is made up of a variety of facilities, primarily academic and administrative buildings and student residences. In the daytime, there is a majority of open access to academic and administrative offices, with the exception of recreation facilities which may require a membership. Academic and administrative offices are secured by members of the Support Services Division at the conclusion of their business hours.
Students and staff who have keys to buildings for after-hours work must lock the doors behind them after they enter and are encouraged to follow all safety precautions. Do NOT prop doors open and if you see a door propped after hours, close it. When doors to residence halls are locked, don't permit anyone other than your guest to enter the building. If you see a suspicious person in any University buildings you should contact the University Police Department at (603) 862-1427.
