Campus Safety Tips

In Case of Fire:

  • Learn the location of emergency exits
  • Activate the fire alarm if you detect fire in a building
  • Always exit the building in the event of a fire alarm
  • Exit by the nearest stairway. Do NOT use elevators
  • Call Campus Safety and Security (3411) from one of the college house phones to notify emergency personnel
  • If close by, press the red button on one of the red emergency phones to be directly connected to Campus Safety and Security
  • Smoke is toxic. If the only way out is through smoke, stay low, below the smoke
  • If trapped, call 911 and tell them where you are. Seal doors with rags or clothing and try to signal from a window

General Safety Guidelines:

  • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings
  • Avoid isolated areas
  • Try to avoid walking alone at night. Walk with friends when possible
  • Call Campus Safety (734) 973-3411 or 3411 from one of college house phones for an escort if needed
  • Notify Campus Safety immediately of suspicious or criminal activity
  • If an emergency arises – a serious health issue, a crime, or any situation in which you feel endangered, contact Campus Safety. There are phones located in all buildings across campus, as well as in several key areas outside

If Walking Alone:

  • Keep your mind on your surroundings, who’s in front of you and who’s behind you. Don’t get distracted
  • Walk purposefully, stand tall, and make eye contact with people around you
  • TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS. If you feel uncomfortable in a situation, leave
