Safety & Security
Our resident's safety and security in college housing is important to us. Housing & Residence Life, in partnership with the Campus Safety Department, works to provide a safe and healthy living and learning environment.
Every student and community member has a role to play in keeping our community safe. The College uses individual student email accounts, LC Alerts, and the Louisburg College website to provide emergency communication to students, staff, and faculty.
Security Tips for the Residence Halls
Here are some steps students can take to minimize risk:
- Always lock your door! This is very important and will assure that no unauthorized individuals will enter your room.
- Check to see who is at your door before opening it. Do not open the door without looking first.
- Never prop open residence hall doors (this is prohibited by campus policy).
- Do not let people you do not know follow you into a residence hall. This is known as tailgating. Make sure that no one follows you in the residence hall without using their Hurricane ID Card or Cellular telephone App.
- Always escort your guests (this is required by campus policy).
- Know where to go for help (i.e. Community Hall Director, Resident Assistant, Campus Safety).
- Do not post your personal information on online social networking sites (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). Be selective about what you share on social media. Do not share your address or cell phone number, and carefully select other personal information when sharing.
Residence Hall Security Measures
- All doors leading to residence hall rooms are locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Access to these areas require a Hurricane ID Card, key, or cell phone access that is issued to residents when they check in at the beginning of the year.
- All residence hall front doors are locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. these are the only doors that are permitted to be used by residents throughout the year. The other exterior fire doors throughout the residence halls are alarmed and are being monitored by security cameras 24/7 every day of the year. It is illegal to use any exterior fire door except for legitimate emergency purposes.
- All of the residence halls have security cameras in the lobbies and doorways that people use to gain entrance into the residential areas, and other areas to capture the images of people coming and going from our campus buildings.
