Safety in the residence halls is everyone’s responsibility. There are a number of things the university does to promote safe environments. They include:
Students are also expected to assume responsibility for their safety. Specifically students are asked to do the following:
Every ground level door of each residence hall has a black rectangular reader box next to the door. You need to pass your ID card in front of the reader to unlock the door and gain access to any residence hall door.
Between 6:00am and 10:00pm daily on-campus residents can access any residence hall with their ID card. Between 10:00pm and 6:00am daily you can enter only the residence hall in which you live. Please make arrangements to meet your guests at the lobby of your building. Building staff cannot let your friends in for you.
Using the phone located in the vestibule of your building please contact University Police by dialing (715)425-3133. They will contact the hall staff on duty to arrange for you to get into your building.
Do not allow anyone to slip into the door behind you. You are responsible to make sure the door closes properly every time you leave or enter the building. It you suspect someone has entered the building unauthorized, please contact a hall staff member or University Police at (715)425-3133.
Please visit the Campus Carding Office in 131 Hagestad Hall 7:45am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday.
Do not punch your ID card to add it to a key chain. ID cards that have been damaged in this or any other way will be confiscated, and will have to be replaced at full cost by the cardholder. Free ID pouches are available in the Card Office.
The UWRF Police Department provides 24-hour-a-day security response for the university, assuring the safety of residents and the rest of the campus community.
Free on campus public telephones are located in the lobbies or public areas of all campus buildings. The University Police Department may be reached by dialing (715)425-3133 or visiting the office in South Hall Room 27.
