Public Safety

Security personnel are available to assist students and visitors to the campus; regulate and enforce traffic and parking regulations; enforce University policies/behavioral expectations; make rounds of the campus; and inspect campus for safety/maintenance concerns. Officers do not have law enforcement authority but can enforce University policies. Students and other members of the University Community should be familiar with the following campus safety and security procedures. In order to reach a security officer you can call ext. 2486 from an on-campus phone or 304-243-2486 from any other phone. The Campus Public Safety Office is located in the annex of Swint Hall. Any student who would like to have a security escort across campus at any time, 24 hours a day, can contact Campus Public Safety at extension 2486. A Security officer or Student Security Assistant will walk students from anywhere on campus to another place on campus.
