Anchorage Campus – Building Access, Safety and Maintenance
UPD maintains security of all campus buildings. University
Police lock and unlock buildings as scheduled by Facilities Scheduling in
Enrollment Services. During weekdays, contracted custodial services personnel
unlock buildings starting at 6:00 am. Request for access to buildings after
hours or on weekends is coordinated by UPD on a case-by-case basis. University
Police frequently patrol the Anchorage campus and walk through buildings.
The Anchorage campus maintenance staff responds to all requests for repairs. University property repairs are logged in with, Facilities Work Management at 786-6980. After hours maintenance emergencies are reported to University Police at 786-1120 who will contact the Facilities duty staff. The Campus Safety Committee meets three times a year to review concerns about safety on campus. Building managers and maintenance staff monitor campus facilities and address safety concerns as they arise. Safety concerns may also be directed to Facilities Maintenance or University Police. For example, it would be appropriate to call University Police to report concerns about icy sidewalks. UPD will refer the concerns to the appropriate University department to address. Safety is everyone's business.RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY
