NSU Residential Living Guide 2020-2021

NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY 29 Parking All residents with vehicles are required to get a residential parking decal from the One-Stop Shop within two weeks of checking into the residence halls. If your car does not have the proper decal it will be ticketed by the Office of Public Safety. All residents must have their NSU SharkCard to access residential lots. All visitors to the main campus residential complex will have to park in the visitor lot next to the Horvitz Building and/or the parking garage next to the Parker Building. Visitor parking is available for guests of Rolling Hills Apartments across from Building A. Medical Emergencies From time to time, medical emergencies do occur in our residence halls. These may include accidents or serious illness. After you have determined the nature of the emergency, it is imperative that you get professional help as quickly as possible: 1. Immediately contact Davie Police—911; 2. Contact Public Safety at (954) 262-8999; 3. Contact your RA. Missing Student Procedures Pursuant to federal law, every residential student is entitled to register any individual (over the age of 18) as their confidential emergency contact person, to be notified in the event of their unlikely disappearance or if they are determined to be “missing.” It is not required that this individual be the same person(s) designated on the Emergency Notification Form. In the event of a missing student, Residential Life and Housing staff and NSU Public Safety will: 1. Attempt to contact the student via telephone, email or other means; 2. Conduct a health and safety check of the resident’s room; and 3. Attempt to engage other students who may be aware of the missing person’s whereabouts (i.e., roommates). If staff is unable to make contact with the potential missing student, Davie Police Department and those individuals designated, below, will be contacted and notified. For any student under 18 years of age, and not an emancipated individual, the Office of Residential Life and Housing is required to notify a custodial parent or guardian no later than twenty-four (24) hours after the time the student is determined to be missing.
