SPECIAL SAFEGUARDS FOR FACILITIES OR ACTIVITIES


SECURITY OF AND ACCESS TO CAMPUS FACILITIES

All campus facilities have key and/or security card access and most are accessible during business hours. Facilities Management is responsible for campus key control and distribution. The Division of Information Technology manages alarm and card access control. Access to on-campus student housing facilities is restricted to residents, their approved/escorted guests and other approved campus community members. Housing security includes both key entry and card access. To provide for the security of campus facilities, the University Police Department enforces penal codes, Education Codes, and Housing Policies. Campus facility access may be revoked per Penal Code 626. Security cameras are located throughout the campus and may be monitored by the University Police Department.

SPECIAL EVENT SAFETY PLANNING

Preparation for large campus events involves the creation of Incident Action Plans according to the Standardized Emergency Management system and in collaboration with mutual aid agencies and contracted safety personnel.

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATIONS

University Police personnel provide personal safety tips and emergency contact information to new students at orientations. Students are informed of policies, crime reporting procedures and safety programs through regular outreach through email, social media, and event tabling throughout the academic year.
