Students, faculty, and staff have access to academic, recreational, and administrative facilities on campus. The general public also has access to these facilities and often uses the University libraries, student center, recreational facilities and venues where concerts, sporting events and other special events are conducted. As described below, security in the residential colleges is much different and access to the residential colleges is very limited.

The Facilities Management Department maintains University buildings and grounds with a concern for safety and security. Facilities Management personnel regularly inspect for and repair potential safety and security hazards as well as responding to reports of such potential hazards.

The University is well lighted and further lighting improvements are made regularly. Lighting includes high-density sodium-vapor lights or metal halide lights on buildings, in parking lots, in areas of heavy landscaping, and along pedestrian pathways. Emergency call boxes are located throughout the residential and academic areas of campus.
