Always Safe and Secure
Kent State is kept safe by an award-winning police department. The department has been honored with the designation of "Flagship Agency" twice, recognizing law enforcement agencies that represent extraordinary examples of excellence in law enforcement accreditation.
Every residence hall is patrolled by Residence Services Security Aides. These aides are in constant contact with University Police via two-way radio. The aides are instantly recognizable by their yellow coats and shirts. They can be called to act as an escort between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m., seven days a week. To get an escort, contact the security aide dispatcher at 330-672-7004. Residence halls remain locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Visitors must be escorted at all times.
