Policy

Adelphi has an open campus and welcomes many visitors to the campus daily. However, to ensure that Adelphi remains one of the safest campuses in the country, employees are asked to lock their desks when not in use, safeguard keys and valuables, and report lost keys to the Department of Public Safety and Transportation. All offices should be locked at the end of the work day. Any suspicious persons should be reported to the Department of Public Safety and Transportation, Levermore Hall, or dial extension 5 from any in-house telephone or dial extension 3511.
