Campus crime and security issues are minimal at CCU due to careful and thorough campus security measures. Campus security and Cincinnati Police officers patrol the campus regularly. CCU is also protected by the use of security cameras that monitor activity on campus. Students living on campus are given access codes to the main door of their residence hall. They may also contact Campus Security to be admitted to the hall (proper identification is required).
The Campus Security office is located in Presidents Hall on the second level. Around the clock, at least one security officer is on duty conducting inspections of campus buildings and patrolling the campus.
In the event of a crime that poses a threat to the campus community, notice is made through the University’s regular announcement sheet, the Rave Alert system, and bulletins placed in high traffic areas of the campus.
Student Identification Cards
Each student’s photo is included on an identification card, which remains effective as long as the student continues at CCU. The card, properly validated, is used for identification in the dining hall, library, at various school activities, and by security personnel. The card may also be used to borrow books from the participating libraries in the greater Cincinnati Library Consortium.
Students who lose their student I.D. cards must obtain a replacement card from the Safety & Security Office at the cost of $15.
