Wilmington College schedules campus safety officers 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to provide security for the campus buildings and grounds in an effective and non-aggressive manner. For the protection of all students, the Campus Safety Office maintains records of all persons found in academic buildings after lock-up time as well as reports of incidents involving violations of law or College regulations in which a Campus Safety officer is involved or receives a report.
Violations should be reported to the Campus Safety Office as well as to outside law agencies when appropriate. Only in cases involving a need for direct confrontation of law offenders or when health or property are threatened will an outside law enforcement agency be called.
Late Night Escort Service
Campus Safety can be called to provide a late-night escort service. Call (937) 382-0100 or use one of the emergency phones located on campus to request an escort to your car or your residence hall after dark.
Campus Safety is also responsible for addressing parking violations. Fire lanes and yellow curbs on campus are clearly marked and VEHICLES WILL BE TOWED and/or IMMOBILIZED if parked in the fire lanes, handicapped parking, parking lot entrances, visitors’ parking, or other restricted areas.
Vehicles parked by a yellow curb on College property or taking up more than one space may be given a warning sticker, ticket, and be towed or immobilized. Wilmington College reserves the right to tow at any time.
Parking regulations and locations of lots are available in the brochure provided when picking up a parking sticker.

The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted in October 2000, went into effect October 2002. The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information, which is provided by a State, concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student.
