- Be a proactive bystander, if you are attending a party and you see someone leading an intoxicated person into their room, step in and ensure the intoxicated person is safe
Building & room security
- Don’t hold open doors for strangers or allow them to tailgate you into residence buildings. People authorized to be in residence will have their own key
- Use the door peephole to verify who’s at your door. Don’t open it for strangers
- Do not prop doors open. If you find one propped open, close it
- Do not lend your keys out to friends
- Lock your door when you sleep and each time you step out of the room
Safe travel on campus
- Use the Safe Walk program to support safe travel on campus 24/7
- Develop a buddy system to go grocery shopping, to walk to and from class, the library, etc.
- Walk in well-lit areas. Don’t cut through – the shortest route is not necessarily the safest route
- Report any lost or stolen keys immediately to the residence office. Missing keys make your property vulnerable to theft
- Do not keep valuables in plain sight
- Don’t leave your room unlocked even to go to the washroom. It only takes a few seconds for someone to enter your room and steal your valuables
