Residence Hall Safety
Residence halls consist of dormitory-style, two- and four-person
rooms, apartments, townhouses, trailers, and fully equipped
houses. With approximately 1,000 residents, Lake State takes
residence hall security very seriously. The Public Safety Department,
along with the Campus Life Office, Residence Life and Housing Office and
resident hall staff combines to
provide residents with the safest living conditions possible.
As a resident, there are helpful precautions that can be made to
ensure your safety.
- Do not prop open doors that are meant to be shut and/or locked.
- Report any suspicious persons in your hall to the Public Safety Department.
- Do not tamper with fire protection and suppression equipment.
- Keep your door locked when you are out of your room or when
you are sleeping.
- Keep valuables locked in a safe place within your room.
- Mark or engrave all valuables with your driverís license number.
- Record all serial numbers from such items as stereos, TVs, VCRs, etc.
- Report all theft, no matter how trivial, to the Public Safety Department.
- Do not lend your keys to anyone. This both jeopardizes your safety as well as the safety of your roommates.
- Report all lost keys immediately.
If you have any questions or concerns about crime prevention on
campus, we encourage you to contact any of the officers of the
Public Safety Department. We will be more than happy to help provide
whatever assistance you may need.
