Building Security and Safety

Most campus buildings and facilities are accessible to members of the campus community, guests, and visitors during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Certain facilities also may be open for designated hours on weekends.

Exterior doors on campus buildings are locked and secured each evening by Campus Safety personnel. Building directors or department heads may submit After-Hours Authorization Forms to Campus Safety to allow individuals access to areas beyond normal building hours. Special areas on campus, such as designated computer labs, may remain open 24 hours a day.

Residence hall exterior doors are kept locked and require a valid NazCard to access. When the residence halls are locked, use a valid Nazareth ID card, or contact Campus Safety. Courtesy phones are located at the main entrances to all residence halls.

Residence hall exterior doors are also equipped with electronic sensors that alert Campus Safety if a door is propped open. Campus Safety, Residential Life, and Facilities staff are encouraged to report all door or security hardware problems for immediate repair.

Campus lighting is an important part of the Nazareth commitment to safety and security. We report lighting problems or inefficiencies immediately to Facilities for corrective action and the two departments conduct an annual comprehensive survey of all exterior lighting. Shrubs and trees are trimmed to enhance safety and security.
