Access to Buildings
Many cultural and community meetings, some of which are open to the public, are held in University facilities.
Both the IU Northwest Bookstore and the IU Northwest Library/Conference Center are open to the public. The exterior doors to all campus facilities can be unlocked by the University Police.
Landscaping and outdoor lighting on campus have been designed with safety and security in mind. Sidewalks provide well-traveled, well-lit routes for individuals walking between parking areas and buildings. In addition, shrubs routinely are trimmed away from sidewalks and building entrances to enhance lighting and visibility.
All campus walkways and parking lots are continuously inspected to ensure that there is adequate lighting. Burned-out lights are replaced promptly. As new buildings and parking lots are added to the IU Northwest campus, lighting and walkways are designed with this same attention to safety and security.
