SNU maintains 24 hour security personnel seven days a week. In addition, Bethany Police patrol the campus hourly. The campus is equipped with a 24 hour dispatch center where students can contact security at any time. Each residence hall is equipped with a controlled access security system; entry to the halls requires a key fob and student ID. Exterior doors and lobby doors are locked for safety. In the event of a fire, activation of the fire alarm disengages the locks. Students will be informed of safeguards and procedures.
