Building and Facility Security Measures

College buildings open to the public are equipped with life safety systems. These life safety systems monitor for intrusion and fire throughout each building. The fire monitoring is active at all times. These alarms are utilized whenever the buildings are not in use or are closed to the public.

While the college is open, the public safety officer(s) conducts patrols throughout the buildings and grounds. The public safety officer(s) on duty carry a cellular phone and a two-way radio. With this radio, the public safety officer can both receive any pages or telephone calls in order to make a quicker response or report any condition that may require assistance.

Access to Buildings and Labs

Because we do not have any on-campus housing, the college buildings are not open to the public 24 hours a day. The college has set hours that the buildings are open. They are as follows: 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday; 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.,*Saturday. (*Saturday hours are only in effect during the fall and spring semesters.)

Times may vary for LCCC site locations.

Lab Passes

If a student needs access to a specific lab, office or other restricted area, that student must possess a lab pass signed by an instructor or other authority figure before gaining access to the area. The Public Safety Department will also use a student directory and a copy of class lists to verify the individuals.

Lockers

For your convenience, lockers have been placed on the lower floor of the Student Services Center. Although there is no charge for locker use, there is a $5 refundable deposit on the lock. Go to the Business Office to pay the $5 and obtain a combination lock. All locks will be removed during July, so it is advisable to return your lock at the end of the spring semester. Failure to do so will result in loss of your deposit. The college reserves the right to open any locker at any time. Any other locks, other than college issued, will be removed. Do not give your combination to friends.

Animals/Pets on Campus

Animals and pets are prohibited from the college grounds, especially inside the buildings. The only exception is service dogs with certifications.

Parking Assignments and Lots

Students shall park in parking lots designated as Student Lots. These lots are A, C, D, E, F, G, I, K and L. For parking purposes, students are defined as credit and noncredit students.
Handicapped parking is located in Lot H, and there are numerous handicap spaces in the other lots throughout campus. Temporary handicap permits can be obtained in the Office of Public Safety and Security. These permits are issued on a one-time-only basis for a period of thirty (30) days.
Employee parking lot is identified as Lot B. No student is permitted to park in this lot or any other parking area posted for employees.
Reminder: No one will be permitted to park in roadways or walkways without authorization from the Department of Public Safety.
