Campus Safety

Yankton is a safe and friendly community but we will never be complacent when it comes to the health and safety of our students. Campus safety officers protect our students, faculty, buildings and grounds. Safety officers may ask for your ID, and they deserve full cooperation. If you witness a crime on campus, please report it to campus security.

Campus safety officers report to the Director of Campus Safety at (605) 668-1316 and work with the Yankton Police Department or other public services for assistance.


Campus buildings are locked at night, and residence hall doors are locked at midnight. If you leave the residence halls or other campus building after closing hours, please secure the doors. Don’t prop open doors or admit unauthorized or uninvited persons after hours. Hall residents are responsible for locking the doors to their own room.

Please report any maintenance problems that could compromise security to the Director of Facilities by calling (605) 668-1500 during the day or Campus Safety at night.

If you would like an escort, call Campus Safety at (9) 661-9883 from a campus telephone during the hours Campus Safety is on duty. A staff member will meet you and walk with you to or from a location on campus.

You can play an important role in crime prevention and campus security. Attend one of our security programs during new student orientation or one of our ongoing sessions in the residence halls, campus forums and college publications.
