College students must be aware that criminal acts can and do occur on a college campus. Students should be mindful of their personal safety. Students should never walk alone if they have concerns regarding their safety. Any student who does not feel comfortable walking alone should call Campus Safety at 804-752-4701. Below are a couple of helpful tips in regards to your personal safety and security.
In an effort to keep our campus safe, the Office of Residence Life and Housing along with Campus Safety would like to remind our students about some of the programs we have.
Fire DrillsRandolph-Macon College practices safe fire precautions by testing residence hall fire alarms regularly and performs Campus wide fire drills once a semester. In the event of a fire, all of our residence halls have a meeting location, in which students should evacuate to in order to meet up with their hall.
FOB Access System Access to all of our residence halls is gained by swiping your Randolph-Macon College FOB through readers adjacent to the entry doors. This allows all of our buildings to be secured 24 hours a day.
Emergency Telephones In an effort to better serve the safety needs of our students, telephones are placed at the main entrance to all of our residence halls. Next to each telephone is a sign which outlines the necessary steps to contact the Campus Safety for assistance. These telephones have a one-touch dialing ability to reach Campus Safety. There are also 15+ emergency call boxes located throughout campus. These emergency phones are easily identifiable by their blue light and will contact Campus Safety directly.
Safety ChecksEach Resident Assistant performs a monthly safety check of each room of every residential building on the campus to ensure that all students are living a safe lifestyle. These checks include checking door locks, window locks, safe electrical outlets, monthly fire alarm tests and more.
Safety Stickers On the back of each residential room door is a bright yellow sticker. This sticker gives the students the physical address of their building in case they need to call for assistance. The sticker also gives details about what to do in case of various emergencies.
As always please feel free to call 911 in case of an emergency to access your local police department. For more information, please check out of Campus Safety website.
