Spring Break security tips for off-campus residents


Let trusted neighbors or friends know you are leaving and ask them to keep an eye on your house.

Leave exterior lights on. Lock all gates, doors and windows. Close all curtains.

If you would like your home checked while you are away on break, the Spokane Police Department Senior Volunteers offer this service. Services are provided Monday through Friday for up to 30 days. All doors and windows are physically checked including any out-buildings on your property. Call the Vacation Home Check Information line at (509)622-5885 if you are interested in having this service provided to you.


If you live off-campus, you may want to park your car on campus over spring break. The City of Spokane only allows parking on the street for up to twelve hours at a time. Consider utilizing the free parking program offered by Campus Public Safety and Security. No permit is required but you must sign up at the CPS&S office located in lower Welch hall. Parking is limited and is on a first-come first-served basis. Campus Security is not responsible for any damage or theft to vehicles if you choose to utilize this program. Remember to lock your vehicle and remove all valuables that may attract unwanted attention.
