Beginning Thursday, Nov. 3, swipe access for students will be restricted to their assigned residence halls, according to an email from Residential Education and Housing sent to the campus community that evening.

This safety measure comes one week after Campus Police received multiple reports of intrusions into residence halls and dorm rooms.

According to the email, students and community members with active ID cards will still have full access to dining locations, such as the Atrium at Eickhoff and T-Dubs. Access to area offices for package pickup and spare key retrieval will be limited to the hours between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The email reminded students that guests, including students who visit other residence halls, must register at the front desk after 8 p.m., and guests must be escorted by the building occupant at all times, as per the College’s guest policy.
