Staying Safe Tips

  • If you have an emergency immediately notify Dover Police at 911.
  • Never walk on or off campus alone. Always walk with a friend or in a group. 
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Stay on well-lit and well-traveled pathways.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe, get out of the area as quickly as possible.
  • If you need an escort contact Safety and Security at 302-736-2436 for assistance. 
  • Do not prop Residence Hall or other campus building doors. 
  • If you have an unknown person in your Residence Hall, contact Safety and Security at 736-2436 or contact your Resident Assistant (RA) or Resident Director (RD).
  • Lock your Residence Hall room EVERY time you exit the room to protect your valuables.
