Residence Hall Safety

West Georgia is a safe campus, and we intend to keep it safe by making sure that our 3000 residential students understand and our actively taking a part to protect themselves and their community.  The more proactive we are, the safer we become.

Crimes that occur in the residence halls can be minimized if as a community we are vigilant and understand that we play a role to keep our home away from home, safe!

The following are some tips to help you reduce the chances of becoming a victim of a crime.


More Campus Housing Information

Each residence hall is supervised by a professional Resident Director; in turn they supervise student Resident Assistants who respond directly to student needs.  All but one of our residence halls have a card access system that will only allow residents of the building into the building.

Resident Assistants do rounds every evening to ensure that our properties are secured. Also we have a 24 hour Resstar desk that can be called for assistance.

We make every effort to ensure that residence halls are free from uninvited visitors, however, much of that responsibility rests with the residents themselves. Residents must take an active role by un-propping doors left ajar and reporting to us the presence of any strangers. Programs emphasizing security and what residents can do to help themselves are provided by Housing and Residence Life.
