The University's Safety Department is responsible for ensuring that proper safety procedures are followed in all areas of campus. Departmental safety responsibilities include Fire Safety, Emergency Planning and Preparedness, Hazardous Material Management, and Occupational Safety.
Parking on campus is enforced by the Department of Public Safety. Parking permits are required for all vehicles on campus. Visitors must register and receive a temporary permit at the Parking Office. All university students and employees must have a parking permit to park on campus as well.
Access & Key Control
The University Police Department is responsible for granting access to academic buildings with card-swipe readers. At the present time, the Science & Technology Center has card reader access for exterior doors and specific interior doors. Access is requested by the professor and authorized by the department chair & dean, then forwarded to campus police to be processed.
Campus keys are distributed through the office of Public Safety. Key requests forms are available at the Public Safety office and must be completed by the employee or student requesting key access to campus buildings or offices. The request is approved by the University Police department. Once the keys have been made by the locksmith, the keys are issued through Public Safety. All keys must be signed for and are the responsibility of the individuals issued to. All keys must be returned to public safety at the end of the authorized time period. Lost keys must be reported immediately to Public Safety and a charge of $40 per key will be assessed to the responsible individual. Lost key fees must be paid prior to re-issuance of keys. Additional charges may be assessed as determined by the Chief of Police and the Facilities management department if the loss indicates a security breach that would require the re-keying of an entire building.
