We encourage all members of the campus community to use common sense and practice good personal safety techniques at all times. Students and employees alike are encouraged to walk in pairs and groups especially during the hours of darkness. However, when this is not possible, please use the campus escort service which is available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. This on-campus service is intended for those who need a security escort to/from class, residence hall, facilities or parking lots. To access the program call 843-553-5896 (or 2020 from a campus phone) and provide the following information to the call taker:
(Please remain in your car or wait in the building lobby until a Campus Security representative arrives.)
This program, staffed by our on-duty officers, serves a community of more than 3,000. Calls for escort service are dispatched immediately. However, a delay in response time may be due to a high volume use of the program. If this occurs, please place your call again.
Security on campus has been enhanced through the installation of emergency call boxes. To date, there are 27 emergency call boxes in various locations to provide immediate interaction and assistance. Additionally there are 54 courtesy phones throughout the residence halls to contact Campus Security.
BUC Alert is an emergency communication system that sends notification to the entire campus community before, during and after an emergency. To signup for BUC Alert notification system, you must be logged into your MyCSU account.
