Student safety is our top priority.

We are now offering complimentary personal safety alarms for students that, when triggered, emit a loud noise. These devices are easy to carry and can clip onto a belt, backpack or your keys. When activated, the alarm sound is at least 100 decibels and can be heard up to 225 feet away.   

We continue to offer complimentary safety devices for your home as well, including window and door alarms and smart plugs. Audible alarms can deter burglars from attempting to enter your residence.

Each student can receive a maximum of 5 window and door alarms, 2 smart plugs and 1 personal safety alarm. 

Collect your devices today by stopping by our office (3106 Ohio Union) M-F, 8 – 5 p.m.
