Policies: Residence Hall Security

Last Updated

For your safety, the Office of Housing and Residence Life has instituted a Security Services program in each of the residence halls. In all halls,  you will be provided with an adhesive security sticker to attach to your Blugold Card. The security sticker identifies the building of residence and semester it was issued to the resident.

A card swipe system is in place for all residence halls. In order to gain access to a residence hall building students will need to swipe their Blugold card for entry.

  • Between 9AM and 10PM residents of a building will be able to enter their hall using any of the card swipes on their hall.
  • From 10PM to 9AM, residents will need to enter through the main entrance of their hall.
  • Between the hours of 10PM and 3AM (specific days and times may vary from hall to hall), halls will have security stations set up to check IDs and register any guests coming into the building.

The guests may be residents from other halls, off campus students, or family and friends. In order to be checked into a hall, a guest needs to be with the resident who is their host and must also present a valid picture ID. The information will the recorded and access granted to the residence hall. If a guest does not have a picture ID they will not be given access to the residence hall. As a host, you are responsible for any guests that visit you.
