Maintaining a safe learning environment for students is a major commitment for the University. The University makes every effort to keep the campus safeas wekk as reduce criminal opportunities. Each student can help us keep this campus safe by being careful and by using preventative measures to avoid potentially harmful situations. The University also maintains safe facilities, buildings, and grounds. For "Safety Tips" flyers and additional information, contact the Office of Student Affairs.
Residential housing has established procedures and policies to ensure safety in the University residence halls. All residence halls are equipped with fire alarm boxes and fire extinguishers and emergency exits. The University has established visitation policies and procedures. All residential hall staff is trained to maintain crowd control, and emergency evacuation related to fire or chemical and hazardous materials. Please review the evacuation procedures with the residential hall staff. Any criminal activity observed within the University grounds or buildings should be reported to the University Police Department at (225) 771-2770. Possession of firearms, including handguns and air guns, is strictly prohibited. Possession of any explosive or other hazardous materials, including fireworks, is also prohibited.

Threatening to use force to inflict bodily harm upon any person on University owned or controlled property (i.e. knowingly causing a person to believe that the offender will cause serious physical harm to one or one's property) is prohibited. Such behavior, which includes rape, sexual assault, or sexually threatening actions, is prohibited.
If you are a victim of sexual assault off campus, contact the Rape Crisis Center, 383-7273, the Baton Rouge Police Department, or the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office. Please have a rape kit exam performed at a local hospital. This ensures that all necessary evidence has been collected should you decide to make a formal police report at a later date.

You may obtain medical assistance from the University Health Center at 771-4770. In addition, the University Counseling Center (UCC) offers individual and group counseling for survivors of sexual assault. Counseling is provided by licensed professionals and all counseling is strictly confidential. Contact the UCC at 771-2480 or 771-3567.
