Common security measures may include any number of the following: emergency and security access telephones throughout campus that connect directly to campus and/or local police; campus entrances that are gated and locked at night, where only students with school identification are allowed access from security staff after hours; residence halls that remain locked at all times, with only students living there having access to the buildings; live-in residence hall directors to oversee each campus housing building; and a student escort service that provides safe, campus-wide assistance to students. Many international student orientations also provide information to new international students about the various ways that they can stay safe on campus.
