  • Do not let unknown people into the IGB or secured spaces.  Anyone needing access should be directed to Operations and Facilities for prox card or key access permissions.      
  • Be aware of people loitering around the doors and grabbing the door before it closes behind you to gain access.
  • Absolutely NO doors should be propped open to compromise IGB security.  
  • Be observant of your surroundings and report any suspicious behavior immediately by calling 911 from a campus phone.   
  • The University of Illinois Public Safety website has helpful information regarding personal safety and other topics of interest.  http://www.dps.uiuc.edu/universitypolice/campussafety.html



Be aware of the potential for ice forming on streets, sidewalks, and parking lots across campus.  Using customary winter caution is the most important means of protection against injury.  Look at the walkway in front of you frequently or continuously when you suspect there could be slick spots.  To report persistent areas of ice accumulation, please contact the Service Office at 217-333-0340.  Please visit http://www.igb.illinois.edu/safety/walking-safely-slippery-conditions for more information.
