Public Safety should be notified immediately at ext. 3333 if you become aware of any threat to persons or property. Crime prevention in college buildings and grounds is a shared community responsibility, and all efforts in this regard are coordinated and facilitated through Public Safety.
Non-residential buildings are cleared and locked at regularly scheduled times by a building monitor or a Public Safety Officer. Supervised access to buildings after-hours will be provided by the Public Safety office pending receipt of proper identification and authorization. Academic buildings are cleared and closed after 11:00 p.m. Woods-Penniman remains open 24 hours a day.
Public Safety is the point-of-contact for all campus key access. Requests for keys may be made to Public Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-During the COVID-19 pandemic, all academic and administrative buildings are accessible by Berea College affiliated personnel only. Student and Staff/Faculty ID’s are to be worn at all times, and these allow access to these buildings during business/building specific hours.
