Operating hours and building access
Public Safety is responsible for opening buildings during the regular hours of operation. Please note that on Saturdays entrance points to buildings may be limited and employees entering the facility may be required to display picture ID to access restricted areas. There is no access to campus buildings on Sundays. The MCTC Public Safety department secures and alarms all buildings after hours.
Campus Compliance and Security Report
MCTC encourages all students and College community members to be fully aware of the safety issues on and around the campus and to take action to prevent and to report illegal and inappropriate activities. Personal awareness and applying personal safety practices are the foundation of a safe community.
Each year MCTC’s Public Safety Department creates and publishes an annual Campus Compliance and Security Report offering three years of campus crime statistics. The Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act requires that this report include information about particular types of crimes that occur in and around MCTC campus properties. This report further includes policy statements, program descriptions and procedures to follow in response to criminal activities.
A copy of these reports can be obtained by calling the Public Safety Department at 612-659-6910.
MCTC has implemented Star Alert, a system that will deliver time-sensitive emergency notifications to you. With Star Alert, our campus leaders and Public Safety Department are able to reach you with information and updates during emergencies, within minutes, through phone calls, emails and/or text messages. Find more information about Start Alert in the intranet.
