Community Safety Over The Summer
With fewer residents on campus, keep in the mind the following safety tips to prevent theft and keep yourself safe:
  • Make sure the door to your apartment is locked at all times. 
  • Keep your windows and patio door closed and locked, especially if you are on the first floor, even when you are home. 
  • Don't let anyone into your apartment who you don't know. If a person comes over to visit a housemate, your housemate should be home to let them in. 
  • Keep your keys on you at all times. If you lose your keys, report it immediately to the Office of Housing and Residence Life in order to have the lock changed.
  • Be smart with your car. Always keep it locked. If you don’t drive it every day, check on it periodically and move it occasionally so it does not appear abandoned. 
  • Always walk with others. At night, when on campus, call the campus escort at 323-343-3700. 
  • Add emergency numbers to your cell phone: Campus Police (323) 343-3700 and the Summer Community Assistant on Duty (323) 343-4807. Remember, 9-1-1 connects you to the Highway Patrol. Use this if you are away from campus. If you are on or near campus, use the number for Campus Police for faster response.
  • Put your credit-card companies’ phone numbers in your cell phone. If your wallet is stolen, you’ll need the numbers to cancel your credit cards.

Money Matters

Donate to the Cal State LA Food Pantry
Instead of throwing out canned and non-perishable food, put them in the boxes in front of the housing office and the Phase I Community Center. Everything collected will be donated to the Cal State LA Food Pantry.
Donate Clothing, Bedding and Other Cloth Items
Help the environment by recycling your old clothes, shoes, beddings, backpacks, etc. USAgain is a textile recycling leader that can use your items regardless of their condition! Put them in the white and green USAgain bins located in Phase I, II and GEA. 
Put Electronics In E-Waste Bins
Please place any electronics you don’t want in the e-waste bins in Phase I and II. Help Cal State LA go green by not putting electronics in the trash.
