Security on Campus

CAMPUS SECURITY & CRIME AWARENESS

Ancilla College encourages students to be fully aware of safety issues occurring on the campus and to take action to prevent and report illegal and inappropriate activities. Personal awareness and personal safety practices are the foundation of a safe community.

Security patrols the College regularly. There is no access to campus facilities after hours unless accompanied by staff or security. Security is available to walk students to their vehicles after class, if needed. Dial “0” from the front lobby telephone to request this service, or to report an incident.

Ancilla monitors activity and maintains a three year report of activity (click here to view the Campus Crime Report for 2013).

Parking

Information regarding campus parking is available from the Business Office. Parking is permitted in lined spaces only, never on the grass. Three parking lots are available for student parking, Lot A (designated for College parking) Lot B and Lot C.

No one may park along the road that borders the campus, in the grass, or in areas that are marked with diagonal lines. Reserved parking spaces for the handicapped are in the College parking lot or located near the auditorium. No parking is allowed in designated visitor spaces*. The parking tag must be displayed from the rear view mirror. Any student without or not displaying a parking pass will be issued a ticket with a $10 fine. This $10 ticket is redeemable for a parking tag for those without them.

The parking fines are as follows:

  • First Notice = $10.00
  • Second Notice = $50.00
  • Third Notice = Vehicle will be towed at the student’s expense (approximately $75.00).

Cars must be locked when in the parking lot. Ancilla College assumes no liability for loss or damage to any vehicle or its contents.

*Visitor parking spots are open to anyone after 5:00pm.

POSSESSION OF FIREARMS AND/OR OTHER LIFE-ENDANGERING INSTRUMENTS

Possession of firearms and other life endangering instruments is prohibited by the College. Fireworks are also prohibited on campus. Any person caught with any of these items is subject to disciplinary action including immediate suspension.
