Safety in Residence
- Do not prop open doors for any reason.
- Do not lend out your residence keys.
- Lock the door to your room at all times.
- Close the drapes before you change.
- Look out for one another. If you see someone suspicious on your floor, ask who they are looking for, or call the Manager or an Advisor.
- Remember that you have the right to question people's presence on your floor.
- Set up a buddy system with others on your floor when you have to travel at night.
- Never leave a fellow resident alone with a date if you know they are too intoxicated to have control over their own actions.
- Never ignore strange noises coming from someone's room. Call the RCMP immediately.
- If you are doing laundry, shopping, or photocopying late at night, let a friend know where you are or have a friend go with you.
- Avoid letting strangers know if you are female. Use your initial rather than your first name on your mailbox and in the phone book.
- If a stranger asks to use your phone, do not let them in. Offer to make the call for them.
- Close your window shades or drapes after dark.
- If you return to your room to find that windows, or doors have been tampered with, do not enter or call out. Go to a neighbour and call the RCMP.
