Converse Campus Safety

Residential Halls

Converse’s residence halls are staffed by resident counselors and undergraduate community advisers (one on each floor). These staff members participate in an annual, extensive training program, including sessions on safety and security. One community advisor, resident counselor and professional Student Development and Success staff member is on call every weekend during the academic year. Visit the Residential Life page for more information.

Campus Safety and the Division of Student Development and Success work together to provide the best possible security and awareness of safety related issues.

Male guests may visit in the living areas of residence halls during visitation hours only. They must be signed in at the front desk and escorted by a Converse student at all times while in the residence hall.

Entrance to the living areas of each residence hall is controlled by a card-access system. All residence hall doors except the main lobby entrances are locked 24 hours a day. Electronic alarms warn residents and the Campus Safety office of open exit doors.

Telephones are located in each lobby for visitors to notify hosts of their arrival. These telephones also serve as emergency telephones to contact Campus Safety. Campus Safety officers patrol the residence hall lobbies and check exterior doors.

Visitation Hours

Visitation may take place in the lobbies of the residence halls at any time. Sleeping overnight in lobbies is not permitted. The Residential Life Staff posts and moderates all visitation policies.
