Campus Safety staff is on duty at all times during the academic year and is responsible for campus safety/security and is authorized to call the local law enforcement authority when they deem it necessary to ensure campus safety.
Campus Safety is to be notified of any crime committed on campus. Students are encouraged to file an incident report with Campus Safety in the event of theft, damage or vandalism to any personal property, physical or verbal assault, or any situation that causes concern to the student. The Campus Safety office is located in Room E100 in the Facilities Management area. Students may request a copy of an Incident report in which they are named from the Dean of Students.
Every student is required to carry their CalArts ID card with them at all times while on campus. It must be presented upon request. Access to the housing areas (Chouinard and Ahmanson Halls) is for residents and their guests only.
Residents are issued room keys and are responsible for keeping their rooms locked. In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics (Clery Act), the Institute prepares an annual campus safety report documenting crime prevention policies and disclosing statistics on the incidence of crime on campus.
