A well-lit campus is a safer campus. This belief has led Campus Safety Services, in partnership with Temple University Facilities Management, to use lighting on campus to deter night crime.
Temple’s six campuses have more than one thousand lights mounted on building rooftops. The 1000-watt metal halide bulbs create a bright white illumination that mimics daylight at ground level. The high visibility and comfort this provides has inspired a new interpretation of the University’s slogan, “The sun never sets at Temple.”
To see more examples, watch our video program.
EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Temple University has implemented a new emergency communication system throughout the Main, Health Sciences, Ambler and Tyler Campuses.
Each strategically placed Code Blue emergency communication station also provides a highly visible deterrent to would-be criminals, while giving students, faculty, and staff an added sense of well-being from knowing help is always right at hand.
Registration of your bicycle with Campus Safety Services will aid in its recovery if lost or stolen.
To register, bring your bike to our headquarters located at 1101 W. Montgomery Avenue on Main Campus. The serial number of your property, along with your name, address and phone number, will be recorded in our data base. As a deterrent to theft, you also will be given a Temple Police sticker to place on your property.
This service is offered to Temple University students, faculty and staff. For more information, call 215-204-6497.
CAMPUS SAFETY TIPS
Security is everyone’s job. Do your part by following these common sense safety tips:
Stay alert and be aware of the people around you. Stand tall, walk purposefully, and make eye contact to show that you're calm, confident, and know where you're going. Avoid dark or hidden walkways. Carry a whistle and be ready to use it. Remember also to trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave.
When possible, use university parking lots. Or, park in well-lit and well-traveled areas. Lock your vehicle, make sure windows are closed, and keep all valuables out of sight. Do not accept rides from people you do not know, and never hitchhike.
Avoid using Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) when anyone suspicious is nearby, if it is dark and you are alone, or if the ATM appears altered.
