Policy Provisions

Security and Access

During business hours, the University (excluding certain housing facilities) will be open to students, parents, employees, contractors, guests, and invitees. During non-business hours access to all University facilities is by key, if issued, or by admittance via Campus Safety or Residence Life staff. In the case of periods of extended closing, the University will admit only those with prior written approval to all facilities.


Residence halls are secured 24 hours a day. Over extended breaks, the doors of all halls will be secured around the clock. Some facilities may have individual hours, which may vary at different times of the year. Examples are the Dallas Floyd Recreational Center, the Vise Library, and administrative offices. In these cases, the facilities will be secured according to schedules developed by the department responsible for the facility. Emergencies may necessitate changes or alterations to any posted schedules.
