Campus outdoor lighting review

Contact: Ross C Stout

Members of of the Residence Hall Association toured campus to identify lighting needs. Facilities is currently addressing the areas that need improvement.

Adequate outdoor lighting is an important component of campus safety. Campus Safety occasionally organizes nighttime tours to review lighting and look for areas of concern.

Members of the Residence Hall Association (RHA) recently contacted Campus Safety about a number of areas that seemed dark and in need of improvement. Together, we completed a nighttime tour of campus April 19.

Three categories of concern were identified.

  1. Lights that were burned out and need bulbs replaced
  2. Lighting fixtures that existed but were not casting much light
  3. Areas where additional lighting fixtures need to be installed 

Facilities already replaced all of the burned-out bulbs. Their staff is reviewing a plan to address the other areas of concern.

Thank you, RHA members who organized this tour. I appreciate your commitment to the safety of our campus.

I encourage everyone to report any of your lighting concerns as these are a high priority to correct.

Please send your lighting concerns and any other concerns about safety to If your issue is urgent, call us 24/7 at 503-370-6911.
