Assuring total security is not possible for the University. Many benefits such as limited-access entrance doors, Resident Assistants and professional staff members on duty, a night Security Guard, Public Safety staff, and the University Police patrolling the campus are provided to assist in security measures. Access to any residential facility is controlled through an electronic door access system. The UCCS Student ID is programmed to allow access to these facilities. University staff and maintenance workers may be granted access to the residential halls in the course of their duties. A guest may access any residential facility if a housing resident accompanies them. The resident is responsible for escorting their guest(s) at all times, and for explaining housing rules and regulations to each guest.
We also believe in the effectiveness of neighbors looking out for each other's interests, and we encourage residents to get to know their neighbors. The Housing staff will support your vigilance and, where applicable, prosecute acts of vandalism, trespassing, and theft.
Police services are provided by the Department of Public Safety at UCCS and residents should promptly report to the Department of Public Safety, x3111 or 255-3111 from a cell phone, and the Office of Residence Life and Housing any incident of theft, vandalism, or unsafe conditions. Whenever possible, the resident should furnish a detailed description of the offender, time and date, make and color of the car, license plate number, etc. Call 911 in case of an emergency or to report criminal activity. An emergency is defined as any immediate threat to life or property. Incidents that are not life-threatening or criminal in nature, but require assistance from a Residence Life staff member, call the on-duty cell phone.
Missing Persons Procedures
If a member of the University community has reason to believe that a student who resides in on-campus housing is missing (missing at least 24 hours), he or she should immediately notify the UCCS Police Department at (719) 255-3111 (3111 from an on-campus phone). UCCS Police will generate a missing person report and initiate an investigation. UCCS Police will also immediately notify the Office of Resident Life and Housing of the missing person report. In the event the Office of Residence Life and Housing is notified directly by a community member that one of the resident students has been missing for more than 24 hours, they will immediately notify the UCCS Police.
The Office of Resident Life and Housing will cooperate fully with the UCCS PD in their investigation, which will include interviewing roommates, floor mates, student staff, etc. The Office of Residence Life and Housing will also conduct a "Health and Safety" entry into the suite and room of the reported missing student.
