Protecting Your Property

  • Keep your possessions in sight at all times. Do not leave books or backpacks unattended.
  • If you leave your residence hall room, apartment or office for even a few minutes, lock the door.
  • Never leave a wallet or purse on top of your desk or dresser in your residence hall room or office. Take it with you or lock it in a drawer.
  • Avoid taking wallets, money and jewelry into athletic facilities and storing them in lockers. These areas are sometimes susceptible to theft. If you do store these items in a locker, use a high quality combination or key lock to secure your property.
  • Mark your high-ticket personal property items (i.e. Stereos, gaming systems, laptops, computers, or other electronic devices) using an acceptable method that will support recovery of any such item if lost or stolen.
  • Download the Personal Property Inventory Sheet to record property information and store in a secure place in case your property is lost or stolen.
