There are dozens of reputable websites that describe ways to be safe at campus. Most of the advise you'll read there is valid.
We have our own short list of behaviors to help you maintain your safety.
Mayville State maintains evening coverage of the campus by Night Watch Patrol. The Night Watch Patrol walks through all academic buildings periodically throughout the nighttime hours. Their duties include overseeing the physical security of university-owned property on the campus. Of primary importance is the safety of students, staff and guests.
The "on call" person for security can be reached by phone: 701-430-0000.
Questions regarding security should be forwarded to the Director of Facilities Services. The office is located in Campus Center Room 113; phone 701-788-4872.
Fire prevention in the residence halls is taken very seriously by hall staff and is the shared responsibility of all students living in the halls. The use of toasters, microwaves, hotpots, or any other cooking appliances is prohibited in rooms. Cooking appliances can only be used in kitchenettes. Candles used for decorative purposes are prohibited, and the burning of candles, incense, and other items with an open flames are prohibited. Students who decorate their door by attaching paper wrap to their residence hall room doors must leave a 1 ft. border around the door free from paper.
For your protection, we urge you to use good judgment in decorating your room so that furniture, posters, mobiles do not create fire hazards. Additionally, highly flammable materials such as chemicals, gasoline, propane, and lighter fluid, and the like, are not permitted in the residence halls.
Fire Alarm System and Equipment
The fire-alarm system and fire-fighting equipment are for your protection in the residence halls.
The State Board of Higher Education mandates that at least one fire drill be held in each residence hall per term. All residents must leave the building when the alarm sounds for the drill. North Dakota State Law requires evacuation. Students are responsible for cooperating and following escape plans as explained by hall staff and posted on each floor. Failure to evacuate the building when an alarm is sounded will result in a disciplinary action.
