Campus Safety

Resident safety and security in on-campus housing and around the CSUSB campus is important to us. The Department of Housing and Residential Education, in coordination with the University Police, works to provide a safe and healthy living environment for all students through several resources.

Measures to Ensure Residents’ Safety:

  • Student Leaders (RAs/AMs) on-duty each evening from 5:00 pm - 8:00 am. These highly trained students are available to assist residents with all questions and concerns and have extensive training to handle emergency situations
  • Area Coordinators of Residential Education (ACOREs) are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with emergency situations
  • University Police presence, response, and support
  • All doors leading to residence halls and apartments are locked 24 hours a day
  • Security cameras in public spaces throughout the Villages
  • Blue Light Phones located throughout Villages and surrounding areas of campus

Personal Safety

Taking responsibility for your personal safety is imperative in a community living environment. DHRE Student Leaders perform rounds each night and University Police services are also available. We encourage residents to take the following measures for their safety and security:

  • Carry room keys/cards at all times; do not lend room keys/cards to others
  • Don’t let people “tailgate” into the building
  • Always lock doors when leaving rooms unattended, even briefly
  • Do not prop exterior doors open
  • Report any non-locking doors and windows to Village staff as soon as possible
  • Report unsafe or suspicious items or persons to Village Student Leaders, ACOREs and/or University Police
  • Do not store items in hallways or obstruct doorways
  • Use a U-Lock to secure your bike
  • Do not post your personal information on online social media sites
  • Avoid walking alone at night; walk with a friend or call the Community Service Officer Escort Service at (909) 537-5165.
