The safety and security of students, employees, and visitors is the Campus Safety and Security Department’s top priority. Due to the size of ERAU, we have the opportunity to build relationships and get to know people by name. Using community outreach, we strive to build trust with our community and work together with students, employees, and visitors to keep ERAU safe and secure. If everyone takes personal responsibility for their own safety and security by maintaining situational awareness and keeping the Campus Safety and Security Department informed of any incidents, the community and the Campus Safety and Security Department will be better suited the fulfill its top priority.

Residents should ensure that they close and lock the exterior doors at all times. Never prop doors open or let strangers into buildings. Always escort off-campus guests and report suspicious persons immediately to the Campus Safety and Security Department.

NOTE: Under COVID-19 precautions, no guests are allowed in the residence halls.

Personal property should not be left out in the open or unattended and should be secured when they are not in use. The Department of Campus Safety & Security has engravers available to aid in theft prevention and recovery.
