Campus Security has CPR and first aid qualified guards on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Security guards patrol buildings and grounds throughout the day and evening on a regular and random basis. Also, Durham Regional Police Service randomly patrols the campus. Both the Whitby and Oshawa campus main entrances are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The campus is closed for all statutory holidays. If you wish to have access to the campus outside of these hours, you must show identification and sign in and out at the security desk at either the Gordon Willey building or Whitby site. The Pickering Learning Site (PLS) is open Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. There is no access to PLS outside of these hours.
For your protection, surveillance cameras are located in buildings, on the grounds and along footpaths. High-level safety mirrors are also located in corridors to enable you to see what is around the corner. Campus security is responsible for the co-ordination and installation of Closed Circuit television (CCTV) security systems in many buildings. CCTV systems are digitally recorded and may be monitored within the Campus Security office.
Emergency phones are on campus and in the parking lots at key locations. You are encouraged to learn where phones are located.
