Resident Safety

Residence Life takes safety and security seriously and has dedicated student staff and professional staff to help ensure your safety. Student staff work to provide additional security in the residence halls.

Residential Life Safety Program

Residential Life oversees the Residential Life Safety Program (RLSP), and provides instruction and help with student concerns. Please contact them with any safety and security questions or concerns you have.

On-Site Safety Staff

The residence halls also have on-site student staff who have received safety and security training and enforce the standards developed to help keep everyone safe.

Dedicated student staff include Safety Ambassadors, who act as a first set of eyes on issues at and around the entrances to the residential halls and as a first responder in any incidents, seeking help from campus partners when appropriate; Safety Coordinators, who supervise Safety Ambassadors and provide educational services; and Community Service Officers, who staff BearWALK and provide additional security support. Everyone is expected to follow the safety instructions of the staff.
