In recent months, the Central Campus has experienced a number of situations in the early morning hours involving people who have come onto college property without a legitimate purpose. College Security Services is concerned these situations could pose a danger to college employees, students or visitors – as well as to college property.
As a result, changes have been made to the Central Campus exterior door unlocking schedule. As you recall, the college’s hours of operation are 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday. On weekdays, building exterior doors will now remain locked until 7 a.m.
Students who need to arrive early on Central Campus will be directed to the Overcash Commons Elizabeth Ave. entrance, which will unlock at 6 a.m. This will allow College Security Services to provide students shelter from the weather and access to facilities while waiting for the college buildings to unlock at 7 a.m.
If a building is scheduled for a 7 a.m. class, the exterior doors will unlock at 6:30 a.m. for student access. Employees would continue to use their access card to get into the building beginning at 6 a.m.
