Residents must accompany visitors at all times. Staff works to enforce this policy for the safety and comfort of all residents. If you would like an overnight guest, you should communicate with your roommate and suitemates. Guests may not stay for a prolonged time.

Property Safety

Make sure to lock your room door, take your key each time you leave your room 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.

Campus Security also provides residence hall walkthroughs, safety checks and 24-hour campus SAFE-WALK for students, faculty and staff. The University Campus Security Team can be reached by calling 208-885-7054 or emailing
