Residence Hall Safety

Delaware Law maintains a campus residential environment conducive to study and rest.  The information on this page discusses our responsibilities and procedures.

The Office of Campus Services administers housing. Housing selection opens in March of each year. Returning students are given priority in room assignments and new students are offered on-campus housing upon acceptance. The Law School reserves the right to reassign students to different accommodations and provides procedures for students to initiate room change requests, copies of which are available within Campus Services.

Campus Safety officers are on duty 24-hours a day. They patrol the interior and exterior of all campus residence halls. Access to student housing facilities is limited to those with authorization. Campus Services personnel, housekeeping, Campus Safety personnel, and emergency or medical personnel may enter the buildings and individual rooms only for bona fide purposes. Campus Safety is also permitted to enter a student room in the interest of student safety.

Students living in residence halls are provided with keys to operate the locks on their room doors. If a student loses his or her key, the room is re-keyed promptly by the Law School locksmith. Students are charged $255.00 for a lock change.

Main entrances to all student housing facilities are equipped with card access control and are locked 24 hours a day. Secondary exterior doors are designated as “exit only” or “emergency exit only” and are locked to the outside. Windows are equipped with locks operable by room occupants.

Students are reminded that propping open exterior or interior residence hall doors is not permitted. Further, doing so poses a threat to occupants. Students found to be responsible for this act will be remanded to the Office of the Dean of Students for possible violation of law school administrative procedures.

Visitors are permitted in law school housing only if accompanied by a resident.  Resident students are personally responsible for the behavior of or damages caused by their guests. Non-Delaware Law overnight guests are requested to register with the Department of Campus Safety.

During vacation and holiday periods law school residence facilities are open, though the school reserves the right to reassign students to other on-campus accommodations.

Delaware Law facilities, lighting, and life safety equipment are maintained to minimize hazardous conditions. Missing equipment and unsafe conditions are reported immediately for repair or correction. The Department of Campus Safety also completes monthly life safety checks that are forwarded to the chief of Campus Safety or Department of Campus Services.
