Security of Student Belongings
The University is not responsible for loss of, theft of, or damage to students' personal possessions. Theft and security concerns should be reported immediately to the Department of Public Safety. Students are responsible for their possessions while on University property and are encouraged to lock the door to their room when they leave, and to utilize laptop locks and other devices to safeguard their property while using University facilities. Residence Hall lobby and suite doors must remain closed and locked at all times. Additionally, students are encouraged not to leave valuables unattended and unsecured. The University encourages residents to obtain their own theft and casualty insurance. Often such coverage may exist in parents' homeowners' policies or may be added for an additional fee. It is also recommended that students record the serial numbers of electronic devices such as laptop computers, digital cameras, etc. Residents are encouraged to take valuables home with them during University breaks.
