Safety & Security

Safety and Security

Alverno College Campus Safety Officers make regular rounds through the residence halls. The residents’ College ID is activated to give access to the buildings. The Austin Hall reception desk is staffed 24 hours, seven days a week, and the receptionist monitors those entering the building and facilitates the check-in process. The Clare Hall desk is staffed Monday-Friday from 5 p.m. to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from noon to midnight.

In addition to the work of the Campus Safety and desk staff, all members of the residential community share responsibility for security. Residents should be aware of their surroundings, keep their ID and room key with them at all times, and report any concerns to the Residence Life or Campus Safety Staff.

Guest Procedures

All guests must check in with a valid ID at the hall desk in accordance with our policies.  Minors 16 and under may check in without an ID for 2 hours without prior approval.  For longer visits, please contact a professional Residence Life staff member. The full guest policy can be found in the Residence Life Handbook.


Parking is free for all students.  Resident students must get a parking pass from Campus Safety in order to park their vehicles overnight.

Austin residents can park overnight in the Parking Structure. Clare residents can park overnight in lots I and G. Guests can receive an overnight parking pass for the parking structure at either the Austin or Clare desk.
