Students living off campus need to take precautions to keep their living environment safe. Prevention is key to making sure you are not a target or victim of crime. When traveling to and from campus, walk with a friend whenever possible. If you must walk alone, use well-lit routes or Safe Ride.
At your apartment:
- Keep your doors and windows secure and locked.
- Consider changing your door locks since you do not know who may have keys from the previous tenant.
- Keep local police and fire emergency numbers handy.
