Campus Safety & Security
Campus security is everyone’s responsibility. For the benefit of the entire college, it is necessary to maintain sound and sensible precautions. All Kendall College students, faculty, and staff must visibly wear their Kendall ID while on campus.
Any questionable incidents, such as improperly unlocked doors or windows or suspicious persons or activities should be reported. During the day, reports should be made to the Office of Student Life at 312.752.2154. After 6:00pm, all incidents should be reported to Kendall Security at 312.752.2445.
Entering and Exiting Campus
Between 8:00am and 8:00pm all students are required to enter and exit the building through the security entrance, immediately to the left of the main entrance.
Incident and Emergency Response
Kendall College is committed to supporting the welfare of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Preparing a campus crisis/Incident Response plan and allocating resources to respond to possible emergencies is one way in which the College offers this support. To accomplish these objectives, the college has developed an Emergency Response plan. The plan is fashioned in accordance with appropriate laws, regulations and policies that govern crisis/emergency preparedness and reflects the best and most current thinking in this area.
The Incident Response Plan is designed to maximize human survival and preservation of property, minimize danger, restore normal operations of the College, and assure responsive communications with the campus, surrounding community, and the City of Chicago. The plan is set in operation whenever a natural or induced emergency affecting the College reaches proportions that cannot be handled by established measures. A crisis may be sudden and unforeseen, or there may be varying periods of warning. This plan is intended to be sufficiently flexible to accommodate contingencies of all types, magnitudes, and duration.
Emergency Notification System
Kendall College utilizes an Emergency Notification System called Blackboard Connect. This system will allow you to receive timely notification should an emergency occur on campus. This system is voluntary, although we strongly encourage everyone to sign up so that you can be notified in case of an emergency. Standard charges for incoming calls and text messages apply (Please check with your provider if you have questions concerning those charges). Register for the emergency notification system
