Access to University Facilities

Access to Moravian University facilities is restricted to students, employees, guests of the University and of its members, and those attending designated public events. Resident students are held responsible for the conduct of their guests.

Community groups may be granted the use of University facilities upon application to the director of public relations. Such groups are subject to institutional regulations governing the use of facilities, including the Moravian University alcohol policy.

Further information concerning access to residence halls is contained in the section on residence-hall security.


PREVENT

Thanks to several initiatives, Moravian University's crime rate has decreased dramatically and students, staff, faculty, and residents of the university community have become more educated about problems of crime. The members of the Campus Police Department want you to remember to PREVENT:

Prevention is the most effective means of eliminating crime. Secure your valuables, keep residence hall doors locked, be aware of your environment.

Record the description of suspicious persons. Do not attempt to question or restrain them yourself.

Escape is the primary objective if you become involved in a dangerous situation. Do not attempt a physical confrontation if escape is possible.

Value your safety and the safety of others.

Employ common sense and awareness in your day to day activities. Remember many victims of crime said, "It can't happen to me.

Notify the campus police at once if you are the victim of a crime or if you witness one.
