This week two cars have been broken into while in the parking lot at Husky Village. Campus Safety and Res Life staff go on rounds each night, but they can't be everywhere. In order to keep our community as safe as possible we rely on resident to report suspicious activity and loud noises immediately. Please remember:

  • If you hear something or see something, IMMEDIATELY call Campus Safety or the RA on Duty.
  • Remove all valuables from your vehicle.
  • Secure your vehicle.
  • If something does happen to your vehicle or you have information about the recent break ins, report it to the RA on Duty.
