Building access to research labs is limited to those who have followed proper procedures for lab access. Please visit the appropriate department to discuss procedures for gaining access to a lab.

Please carry your KSU identification card with you when using the building after hours in case you are asked to show identification to university police. Do not confront a suspicious person – push one of the blue light emergency buttons found throughout campus or call (785) 532-6412.

If you feel threatened or at risk for your personal safety while on campus, especially after hours, contact Wildcat Walk Escort Service at (785) 395-SAFE or push one of the blue light emergency buttons found throughout campus and an escort will meet you and walk you to another on-campus destination or up to two blocks off-campus. Wildcat Walk is a service provided by the KSU police department.

Also available is LiveSafe, a safety app for smartphones. It is free and can be downloaded on any iPhone and Android-based device through iTunes or Google Play. LiveSafe enables smartphone users to anonymously send text, photo and video tips to campus police; have friends and family monitor their walks via GPS; find campus safety procedures and resources; and more.

Features in the LiveSafe app include:

  • Texts, photos and video tips can be anonymously sent to campus police.
  • A “virtual escort” feature called SafeWalk enables users to invite friends or family members to look out for them while moving from one location to another. Once notified, a guardian can monitor the apps user’s walk on a map in real time using GPS.
  • An emergency dialer that can call 911.
  • The ability to directly call other safety resources such as the University’s SafeRide and the Office of Student Life.
  • A GPS-driven map shows users crimes that have been reported in their area as well as shelters and safe spots.
  • An easy-to-navigate directory that includes information for emergency procedures such as how to respond to an active shooter; snow, tornadoes and severe weather; and campus resources such as counseling services and the Center for Advocacy Response and Education.
