Access to Campus Facilities

We strive to make our campus safe by limiting access to buildings after hours. Buildings on campus are generally open during regular business hours, when class is in session and for special events. Persons authorized to remain in a building after closing time are required to have proper identification at all times. Police and security personnel conduct frequent internal and external checks of buildings on campus
