Escort Policy

You must escort all guests into the Residence Halls, as they are locked to non-residents. If you have a guest staying in your room, you should communicate with your roommate and make sure the guest does not stay for a prolonged period of time. Staff works to enforce this policy for the safety and comfort of all residents.

Moscow Police Department & Campus Security

Housing & Residence Life works directly with the Moscow Police Department to ensure safety in the Residence Halls. Campus Security also provides hall walk-throughs, safety checks and a 24-hour campus “safe-walk” program.

Fire Safety

Due to the risk of fire, the following items are prohibited in the Residence Halls: candles, incense, flammable liquids and cooking appliances with open heating elements. Do not hang any items on the sprinkler heads located in rooms or hallways. For more information on what to bring and not bring, visit our Pinterest page.

Property Safety

Make sure to lock your room door and do not leave property unattended. Most on-campus thefts are “crimes of opportunity,” meaning that they can be prevented by keeping personal property locked up.
