Campus Safety & Security
In an effort to provide optimal security for all students with disabilities living in the residence halls, at the beginning of each semester KCU will prepare a roster of all students with self-reported or parent/advocate reported disabilities living in the halls. The roster will include the name of the student, his/her reported disability, residence hall name, room number and phone number. Copies of this roster will be given to the resident assistant (R.A.) responsible for the section in which a student with a disability resides, the Director of Men’s Services, the Director of Women’s Services, the Director of Residence Services, Dean of Student Services, the Student Services Office and all security personnel to be used in an emergency to identify, locate and act to help, protect, and, if necessary, rescue the student with a disability.
For the protection of the KCU community and facilities, a security guard is on duty from the evening hours into the early morning. A major goal of Campus Safety is to offer protection for people and property on the campus. In order to accomplish this goal, assistance is needed of every person on campus. Campus Safety offers numerous services and a strong desire to serve our KCU campus community. Should you have any questions, please contact Campus Safety at 606-316-1004 or Dean of Student Services at 3285 or 3288. To notify on-campus personnel of a non-emergency situation, contact 606-474-3333.
Services Offered by Campus Safety
- Emergency First Aid Assistance – To provide assistance to advanced life support which is normally only minutes away.
- Fire Safety – To provide an atmosphere free from fire hazards.
- Escort Service – Officers will escort you to any point on campus after 6:00 p.m.
- Parking Regulations – To provide spaces in well-lighted parking lots and regulate these lots for the safety of the KCU community.
- Crime Prevention – Yes, it’s everybody’s responsibility. However, the protection of personal property, such as books, jewelry, radios, stereos, TVs, etc., is your responsibility. Do not leave the door to your room or your vehicle unlocked at any time. A thief only needs seconds to steal from your room or car. Try not to keep large sums of money or expensive property on campus. Always be security conscious with your property and the property of others. Should you be the victim of a theft, contact the Director of Men’s/ Women’s Services, Dean of Student Services, or Campus Safety. The College is not responsible for the loss or damage of a student’s personal property.
- Bicycles – Although bicycle registration is not required, traffic regulations apply to bicycles in the same manner as they apply to vehicles. Operators of bicycles on campus are urged to use the utmost caution and courtesy. Bicycles ridden after dark should be equipped with adequate lights and reflectors in order to be visible to motor vehicle operators. Bicycles must be parked in one of the bicycle racks located on campus.
- Motorist Assistance – Motorist assistance is limited. However, at your request, Campus Safety will attempt to contact a wrecker service or repair person if your vehicle is disabled. Cost of the wrecker is to be paid by the student. Services are based on a priority system. Campus Safety will respond to your request as quickly as possible; however, personal safety calls will take precedence over motorist assistance. You will be advised of approximately how long it may take for a Campus Safety officer to respond. Right to Know/Hazard
- Communication – Information concerning chemicals and materials used or stored on campus, related hazards, and personal protection are available upon request.
