At Nicholls, we make safety our concern so you don’t have to make it yours.
• 24-hour officer patrol: Officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. University police officers are responsible for law enforcement and vehicle traffic control, which includes responding to service calls, medical emergencies, fire emergencies, traffic accidents and any other requests requiring police assistance.
• Emergency call boxes: Emergency call boxes have been placed in strategic locations throughout campus. The state-of-the-art call boxes are on 12-foot-tall white poles with blue lights on the top and emergency decals that can easily be seen. When someone activates the emergency mechanism, a pulsating white light will flash, and the campus police radio system will instantly identify the location.
Surveillance cameras: Cameras are positioned in and around residence halls to ensure the safety of students who reside on campus. Officers on duty monitor these cameras at the university police department.
Card reader entry systems: Card readers are affixed to the entrance of residence halls and allow only residents and authorized staff members to gain entry into the building.
Emergency messaging: An option for all students, faculty and staff, the emergency notification system allows users to receive voicemails, text messages and/or emails in the event of an emergency. These messages provide instructions on how to proceed to ensure your continued safety.
