Hillsdale College Campus Security is moving to new offices on the lower level of the Knorr Student Center this week after nearly 10 years at 25 Galloway Drive.

It will take over the former Information Technology Security offices, across from Career Services.

“This new office location makes us more centralized and easier to find for students, visitors and staff,” said Joe Callum, associate director of security and emergency management.

According to general manager Rich Péwé, the new location will be more convenient for students.

“Students won’t have to cross the street to get to security,” Péwé said.

The new office space is similar in size but organized more efficiently with easier access to campus, Callum said.

“The foot patrol will be parked outside nearby, giving them quick access to their vehicles,” Callum said. “We have a larger briefing room for the arrival of other entities and a conference room, which we did not have before.”

In addition, the college renovated new office space. According to Callum, they added a plexiglass window with access to the hallway.

Rookie Carlie Steele said it would be helpful to have student resources close to each other after the security desks move.

“Security has done such a good job of being a resource for students and making their presence known that they are there to support you
