The outer doors to the residence halls are locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year round. Students may not prop open a locked door at any time. Propping open locked doors poses a security and safety threat for all residents. All residents are responsible for taking reasonable measures to protect their own person and property and also that of their roommate(s). Students can manage their safety and security by routinely locking their room door, retaining their assigned key/ID, supporting and cooperating with efforts of the residential life staff and Department of Public Safety personnel.
