Help reduce campus thefts

Theft on college campuses is often a crime of opportunity — somebody takes advantage of an unattended cell phone, an unlocked car door or a laptop visible in the window of a parked car.

Please help yourself by taking a moment to secure your belongings:

  • In the library, if you step away from your table, take your laptop with you.
  • Lock the door to your residence hall room, even if you leave for only a minute.
  • In the Rec Center, lock your items in a locker.
  • In your car, tuck valuables out of sight. Do not leave money, electronics, etc. 在视图.
  • Resident students and overnight parkers should move their vehicles every few days.

The University aggressive pursues those caught stealing. 去年, all students who were found responsible for theft were suspended by the University, while nonstudents charged with theft were aggressively sent through the criminal justice system.

万博APP will continue to do its part to help reduce theft. Please do your part by being thoughtful about how you store your belongings.
