ACCESS, MAINTENANCE AND
SECURITY OF FACILITIES
As a member of the campus community you, as well as University guests and visitors, have access to most campus buildings and facilities during regular hours, Monday through Friday, and for scheduled events, Saturdays and Sundays, excluding most holidays. The Department of Public Safety is responsible for locking and unlocking designated University buildings and for patrols of campus grounds and buildings. If you need assistance in gaining authorized entry to a University building or room, and no other assistance is available, you can call the Department of Public Safety at 255-3111 for help. Many times buildings, rooms, and offices will be opened only with a pre-approved entry request. See http://www.uccs.edu/~pusafety/information/printable/entry.pdf for the entry form.

Exterior campus lighting is essential to creating a safe campus environment. Motor vehicle parking lots, main pedestrian walkways and bike paths, and most campus building exteriors are lighted either all night long or several hours past the end of the last class. Several times yearly, the exterior lighting receives a comprehensive inspection to identify any unreported lighting failures. You are encouraged to report any exterior lighting problems by either submitting a work order to Physical Plant Operations via website http://arc/uccs/menupage.cfm , by calling Physical Plant at 255-3313, or by calling the Department of Public Safety at 255-3111.
Trees, Vines, and Shrubs
Campus grounds-keepers trim trees, vines, shrubs, and other vegetation on a regular basis to maintain campus security. Obstructing vegetation is trimmed away from pedestrian walkways, building entrances, windows, and lighting fixtures. You are encouraged to report any specific concerns regarding vegetation to Physical Plant Operations via website http://arc/uccs/menupage.cfm , by calling Physical Plant at 255-3313, or by calling the Department of Public Safety at 255-3111.
Doors and Locks
University police officers and campus security officers regularly patrol the exterior and interior of campus buildings throughout the night and on weekends and holidays. These officers report door lock and security hardware failures to Physical Plant Operations on a daily basis. Hardware failures and malfunctions are given the highest priority, and physical plant personnel are on hand daily to make such repairs. At other times of the day, service is dispatched as soon as possible, provided no safety problem exists.
