The Security office at the West Windsor Campus is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is committed to providing a safe campus environment. The Security Department is also responsible for protecting college property and the enforcement of all college regulations, including parking and traffic control. The James Kerney Campus Security office provides the same services and is open during the normal operating hours of that facility. Red telephones are located at either end of hallways and vestibules throughout the campus. These telephones provide direct communication with the Security office and should be used for emergency reasons only. Campus crime statistics are available upon request.

Visitors to Campus

The College is host to many organizations and community activities throughout the year. Visitors who do not have an appointment with a specific campus official should first report to the Security Office. Visitors who are guests of current students are the responsibility of the host student and will be expected to abide by policies and procedures set forth for all students. Visitors/guests will not be permitted to enter classrooms where instruction is being provided without prior approval by the classroom instructor.

Smoking Policy

Mercer’s buildings are smoke-free. Smoking on campus grounds is prohibited except in privately owned vehicles or in areas designated by the college as "Smoking Permitted." All such areas are positioned to minimize nonsmoker exposure to second-hand smoke. All members of the college community are responsible for compliance with this policy, which is further detailed – including penalties for violations – in the Student Calendar/Handbook.
