The Campus Environment and Safety
The Alfred State family is not immune or isolated from the issues that impact colleges and our nation in general. These include the use of illegal substances and alcohol, personal safety, and other activities that are detrimental to all members of the community. Acknowledging this, Alfred State continues to be proactive in responding to behaviors that jeopardize members of the college community and provides a variety of support services to assist students having difficulty in adjusting to the college environment.
A few examples which are indicative of the college’s response include the following:
- All residence halls are locked from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m., with residents using their building keys for entry. Student security staff is available in each hall from midnight until 3 a.m.
- Residence halls are staffed by trained student staff members living on each floor and a professional staff member assigned to each hall
- University Police staff is available on a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week basis to address emergency safety- and health-related problems
- Campus Health Services (Alfred and Wellsville locations) provide students access to health care professionals including physicians at no cost during scheduled hours.
- Violations of the college’s Code of Student Conduct are addressed by all members of the Student Life and University Police staffs.
- Services are available to assist students who are attempting to address a variety and complexity of personal, financial, and vocational issues.
