Keep your valuables secure

We believe in a strong sense of safety and security of our students and their belongings.  Though we believe we have a safe campus, issues can happen.

  • Having a personal safe helps students as well as families feel their valued possessions stay secured. 
  • Safes purchased through College Products provide key or card (debit, credit, student ID, etc.) entry for their safes which can hold laptops, keys, IDs, money, and other valuables. 
  • The safes can be tethered to beds, shelves, etc. to make sure they don't walk away.
