Personal Safety Tips

With the recent events across campus, we at Campus Security and Public Safety want to remind you of some things that can keep you and your fellow students safe:

  • If you are experiencing an emergency, or need Police, Fire or Medics right away, call 911. If you are unsure of what is going on call campus security at 509-313-2222.
  • If you see something suspicious, or out of place call Campus Security right away. If you momentarily wonder if Campus Security may what to know…….call.
  • When entering a residence hall, or academic building, do not let people run up behind you and grab the door. That will force them to scan their ID if they belong there.  If they get in and you don’t think they belong there, call us at 313-2222.
  • If you feel like someone is following you to the front door, think of another entrance you can use, or call one of your roommates to let you in, so there is more than one person there when you go in. If you feel like you are being followed, you have the option of calling 911 or Campus Security.  Keep walking and tell us where you are.  Stay in lit or populated areas.  Don’t forget the blue light phones.
  • If you see someone you don’t recognize inside your residence hall, or maybe hanging around outside, call campus security immediately.
  • Don’t be afraid to call. The likelihood that we are going to find a problem is generally very minimal, but we want to be aware of what is happening on campus.  And if you hesitate to call, we may miss something.
