Safety, Security & Support
Housing and Residential Education is committed to student’s safety and security. Through working with campus partners, we offer students support from professional staff members and resources through campus. This web page serves as space to provide you information about safety tips, security measures at the “U”, and contact information for Housing and Residential staff and campus partners. We are excited to work with students to create a safe, secure, and supportive environment. All students are active members of our community who have a responsibility to say something if they see something.
Part of the campus experience is to engage with your community and to learn to live cooperatively with others. If you have feedback for your roommate, neighbors, or another student at the “U”, we encourage you to address the individuals directly. If you need support on how to approach a conflict, or if individuals you wish to communicate with are not responsive, please feel welcome to call the front desks to ask that the RA on duty be contacted and requested to help address the situation.
