Introduce PresentersDuring this session we will go over key policies, procedures , and safety information in this presentation. Please hold all questions until the end of the presentation.
Mention tailgating/piggybacking and relate this to the previous thefts and vandalism in the residence hallsRemind residents that they will not be given access to be building in order to walk through the lobby to get to an adjacent sidewalk. All buildings have pedestrian routes provided for access to all other areas of campus.While it may seem impolite to not hold the door for someone, keep in mind that if you allow a person to follow you into the building who does not live there, you are giving them access to both your home and the home of others.Explain that the Emergency Exit doors are structurally not intended for regular use, and therefore become a security issue if frequent use causes them to malfunction.
Stress that any person of the opposite sex, whether a resident of that building or not, is considered a guest, and all Open House Policies apply (hours, being registered, etc.)Remind residents of the importance of discussing guests with their roommates/suitemates. Your right/privilege of having guests stops where your roommate’s / suitemate’s rights to privacy begin.Visitors under the age of 17 must remain in the lobby area of the building, and must be in the company of the resident he/she is visiting.
Reinforce talking with roommates / suitemates about overnight guests in particular.Any overnight stays beyond the limits stated can be considered “cohabitation” and may result in referral to SL&C and sanctionsHighlight the 11:00 PM check-in time. Night guards cannot register an overnight guest, and will not allow any non-residents beyond the lobby area.
Emphasize that each hall’s structure and layout is different which is why these policies differ from building to building.
We’re not putting policies in place to try and catch residents in order to place sanctions on them, or to cause undue inconvenience for our residents.These policies are layers of safety measures to insure that residents have safe living environments.Our overall goal is for residents to follow the policies, not to fine or sanction residents. However, if residents choose to violate the policies, and in turn put all residents in danger, it is our duty to hold them accountable.
We are not able to talk with your parents regarding many matters pertaining to you. If you have a problem, issue, or concern, it’s best for YOU to come and speak with the persons yourself.
According to the University’s Code of Student Conduct, all students should have their ID card on them at all times while on campus. Your ID is your key to the building. Without your key, you either do not gain access, or you are charged to have someone give you access.The $15.00 Unlock Door fee and the Lock Change charges are applied to your University account and can be paid in the Cashier’s office in Vermillion Hall.If you loose your key, the Lock Change charge will be applied to your account regardless. Better to get a new key and to be able to protect your belongings than to leave your door unlocked.Community Assistants are the only personnel who can unlock your door for you. Because they are students, there will be times when they are unavailable to unlock your door. You should not ask maintenance or custodial staff to unlock your doors as they cannot do so.
