Safety and Security

Safety and Security

The Department of Public Safety works in partnership with Facilities Management, Environmental Safety and Risk Management, UDit, and Campus Card Services to manage safety and security systems.

Safety and security systems are installed throughout the campus, including fire and security alarms, electronic access control, video cameras, and emergency phones. These systems aid Public Safety in its mission of providing a safe and secure campus. Security systems are installed according to the projected vulnerability of the facility after assessment and consultation with occupant and review of applicable code requirements with Facilities Management.

All campus safety and security systems are monitored in the Department of Public Safety Communication Center, enabling immediate response to an emergency on campus or within a university facility.

In order to ensure standardization of safety and security systems throughout the campus, along with judicious utilization of university resources, all safety and security system requirements must be coordinated with the Department of Public Safety. No self-installed systems are authorized.
