Each residence hall is staffed by a full-time professional housing coordinator and student resident assistants who are all charged with promoting the welfare of residents. In addition to enforcing house policies and procedures, these staff members participate in year round training about campus safety and security conducted by University administrators, police officers and safety officers. The University's four residence halls Kilcawley, Cafaro, Lyden & Wick are monitored from a front desk that is staffed 24 hours a day. A YSU police officer conducts a roving patrol among the residence halls during the evening hours and early morning hours. At night, front desks are staffed by YSU police officers. All residence hall doors are locked from 8 p.m. until 8 a.m. and students may gain access only by using their assigned residence hall room key. Electronic alarms alert police and staff to outside doors that are unlocked or propped open, and fire exits are fitted with alarms and monitored by remote video.
At the main desk, both on-campus and off-campus visitors must sign in and must be escorted through the residence hall by a resident. All student rooms are equipped with deadbolt locks and all windows have locking devices. A full-time staff member and a student RA is on call at all times to handle emergencies and situations as they arise.
