While our department is not responsible for adherence to all campus policies found in the Student Life Guide or Employee Information Guide, there are some campus policies we actively enforce for the safety and security of the campus community.
Proper identification should be worn and visible at all times inside campus buildings. While we understand this can present an inconvenience at times, it’s proven to be a necessary component of our access policy to ensure the safety of our campus community.
If you forget your ID, please take a moment to stop at any Public Safety desk to obtain a temporary replacement. If you believe your ID may have been lost or stolen, please inform the Public Safety Department immediately so that they can deactivate the missing ID.
Soliciting is not permitted anywhere on campus property. While we understand the desire of many students and staff to help those in need, we also have an obligation to ensure the safety of the community at large.
Unfortunately, there are many individuals in our neighborhood who approach students and staff under false pretenses to obtain money, food, or other assistance. In some cases, these same individuals have been involved in criminal activity directed against members of our community.
If someone approaches you on campus, please direct them instead to local community services that are equipped to provide care. There are many organizations in the city of Chicago ready to feed, clothe, and serve the homeless of our city.
If you observe anyone soliciting others on campus, please notify us immediately so that we can speak to them about the policy and available resources in the area.
Loitering is not permitted in campus parking areas to maintain a safe space for both drivers and pedestrians.
Parking is limited on our campus, and our officers conduct parking enforcement as a service to the campus community, ensuring that there are spaces available for those with valid permits.
Because of the limited space available, parking on campus is not a right, but a privilege. Abusing this privilege or attempting to park without a permit may result in fines, towing, and the suspension of parking privileges.
If you have questions about the current parking policy or the availability of parking on campus, please contact the Public Safety Department during business hours at 312-329-4357 or email email@example.com.
Much like parking, space for bicycles is limited on campus. Our officers conduct bicycle permit enforcement as a service to the campus community, ensuring that there are spaces available for those with valid permits and reducing the number of abandoned bicycles left littering our campus bicycle racks.
Bicycles that are left unattended for an extended period of time may be subject to fines, removal, and impound.
If you have questions about the current bicycle policy or obtaining a free bicycle permit, please contact the Public Safety Department during business hours at 312-329-4357 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Significant filming projects on campus property must be approved by the Public Relations department. If you desire permission to film on campus, please call 312-329-4449 or email email@example.com.
