Campus crime and security issues are very minimal due to careful and thorough campus security measures. Campus security and Cincinnati Police officers patrol the campus regularly. CCU is also protected by the use of security cameras that monitor activity on campus. Students living on campus are given access codes to the main door of their residence hall. They may also contact Campus Security to be admitted to the hall and proper identification is required. The residence halls and other campus buildings have an announced closing hour during the year, exceptions to the posted times must be approved by either the Student Life Office or Hall Coordinators in advance of a scheduled event.
Campus security is the responsibility of the entire CCU community. It is therefore important for members of the community to report any and all questionable incidents. Crimes that occur on campus are to be reported immediately to the Director of Safety and Security (513.244.8437). Victims or witnesses of criminal activities are directed to complete an Incident Report, which details the facts surrounding the crime. Report forms are available in the Safety & Security office, through residential staff, or in the Student Life office. In cases involving violation of local, state, or federal laws, the Cincinnati Police are notified for appropriate follow up. The University cooperates fully with any investigations conducted by proper authorities. In the event of a crime that poses a threat to the campus community, notice is made through the University’s regular announcement sheet and bulletins placed in high traffic areas of the campus and the Rave Alert system.
