Safety and security

LAU is committed to making its campuses safe and secure, providing students with an optimum environment for learning, pursuing their interests, and socializing.

Security guards protect the campus entrances 24/7. Visitors who walk in on unscheduled visits to our campuses are asked to provide their IDs. The campus entrances are open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day.

The dorms are similarly controlled (how is security managed at the residence halls?).
