Furthermore, these officers will escort students to their cars upon request and maintain parking surveillance. The campus also relies on the Orange Police Department when needed. The direct line for campus security is (409) 670-0789. All emergencies on campus should be reported to the Vice President for Student Services Office (409-882-3342). For emergency use there are telephones located in the hallways of all the campus buildings, which dial directly to campus security.
