The Physical Plant Department maintains college buildings and grounds with a concern for safety and security. This department communicates all deficiencies found to the Physical Plant Department for corrective action.
Access to Campus Facilities
Campus buildings and facilities are accessible to members of the college community and to guests and visitors during normal business hours. In order to provide for the security of all, individuals may be asked to produce identification. All students are required to carry their photo identification card at all times, and to produce it to college officials upon request.
Residential Facilities and Policies
Davidson College houses students in various accommodations, including dormitories and apartments. Residence halls are locked at all times and require the use of a key card or combination code access to gain entry. If the key card is lost or stolen report it to Public Safety immediately, the lost or stolen card can be deactivated and a new key card issued to the student. The assistance of all students in not propping open doors or letting strangers into the residence facilities is very important. Guests of students in dormitories must be sponsored prior to entry and accompanied by that sponsor whenever in the residence hall. Guests must adhere to the designated visitation hours and are the responsibility of the student sponsor. Residence Life staff members reside in each residence facility, and are available to provide assistance to students.
