Safety and Security
Our campus safety teams are dedicated to making your new campus home safe, secure and interactive. Be sure to explore the opportunities for employment as a Resident Assistant in one of our residence communities.
Windward Commons exterior doors are equipped with electronic access control so that only residents and appropriate staff can enter. Apartment and bedrooms doors are secured by traditional locks.
The apartments, bedrooms, and common areas are equipped with protection systems including fire alarms and fire sprinklers.
24/7 Police & Surveillance
The Police Department is a fully empowered law enforcement agency. The main objective of this department is to ensure the safety, peace and tranquility of the academic community and our residence halls. Police officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day. Closed circuit surveillance cameras, monitored by the police department, are located around the residence halls' entrance/exit doors and throughout campus.
Residence Hall Staff
Armstrong's residence halls are staffed with Resident Assistants who are trained in emergency response and work closely with our campus police to ensure students' safety.
Armstrong does not assume legal or financial obligation for any students' personal property that may be lost or damaged in its buildings or on its grounds (including but not limited to failure or interruption of utilities and unforeseen accidents / injuries). Students and/or their parents are encouraged to carry appropriate insurance to cover such losses. Armstrong recommends National Student Services, Inc. or CSI Insurance Agency, Inc.
Security Outside the Halls
Emergency telephones and exterior lighting are located outside each building, in the residence hall parking lots, and along all of our frequented walkways.
The Armstrong BLAST emergency notification system will notify students, faculty, and staff through voice and text messages during a campus emergency. Messages can be sent to landline phones, cell phones, and email addresses within minutes. Emergency information will also be posted on the university web site.
