We would appreciate assistance in keeping the Lafayette College campus a safer place to live:

  • Keep a complete, up-to-date inventory of valuables. Owners should mark them with their driver license number with one of the Public Safety’s engravers.
  • Keys should be kept and handled by the student, and the student only.
  • Strangers should never be let in one’s room, especially if someone is alone.
  • Use good judgment when sharing phone numbers.
  • Student ID number (Social Security number) should not be given to anyone except the College faculty, administration, and/or staff.
  • Bicycles should be locked to a permanent object or a bike rack, not just to itself.
  • Always use Public Safety’s escort service, especially if traveling the campus alone. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Each room contains a person’s “life possessions,” therefore doors need to be locked and keys always kept with the owner. If roommates do not care or understand, a room change request should be considered.

Too many times, people believe misfortune only happens to other people, never to themselves—until it is too late. Don’t become a statistic; instead, enjoy being a student.
