Academic and administrative facilities are unlocked and open to members of the university community during the normal course of the business day. Special access outside of normal business hours must be prearranged through individual academic or administrative departments.
UNH residence halls are always locked. Students are advised to be alert to non-residents trying to "tailgate" into the building behind them. CCTV cameras record all activity at the main residence hall entrances.
Another important security consideration is the matter of unlocked or propped doors. Residents should ALWAYS keep their residence hall room locked and always know who is knocking before opening the door. It is the responsibility of every resident to help insure that no doors are propped open. If you see a propped door, you should un-prop it or immediately report it to the Residential Life staff.
