Campus Cooperation for Safety Program
Recognizing that students bear primary responsibility for their safety, Campus Cooperation for Safety was
organized as an education/prevention program in the residence halls. Students are instructed in safety issues and
asked to help maintain a safe environment by signing the following agreement:
For my protection and the protection of fellow students, I will do the following:
Keep my OneCard pin code confidential, and not loan my OneCard to anyone.
Keep doors to my room locked.
Report any unauthorized person in the building.
Call HSU Police for escort after hours.
Report persons around the outside of the building after hours.
In compliance with its duties under federal law, Hardin-Simmons University makes annual disclosure of campus
crime statistics and campus security disclosures. These disclosures are made by September 1 of each year to
current students and employees and prospective students and employees.
Vehicle and Traffic Regulations and Requirements
All students, faculty, and staff must comply with the procedures and regulations governing motor vehicles set forth
by the university. Such agreement is implied by the actual operation of a vehicle on HSU property.
All motor vehicles operated or parked on HSU property, including the University Apartments and Wolfe
Apartments, must be registered with the HSU Police Department. This includes vehicles operated by evening and
weekend students. Registration decals from McM, ACU, or HSU are honored at all three schools.
Motor vehicles should be registered during the academic registration process. Late registrants should report to the
HSU Police Department.
Students from McM, ACU, and Patty Hanks Shelton School of Nursing who plan to operate their vehicles on the
HSU campus should report to the Campus Police Department for information and obtain a copy of the vehicle
handbook. Vehicles with McM and ACU auto permits are considered commuter students and may not be parked in
certain areas restricted for resident students.
