Campus Security Policies, Crime Statistics & Crime Log

Our goal at CCS is to ensure a safe environment in which students, faculty, and staff can work and learn. To attain this goal, members of the campus community must take responsibility for their own safety and security and that of their neighbors. Working together, we can maintain a safe environment.

Campus Housing Access

Access beyond the Art Centre Building (ACB) lobby is restricted to residents of the ACB and their guests. All students, faculty, and staff must present CCS identification when entering the building. Guests must sign in and out and leave a valid photo ID at the front desk.

Access to the Taubman Center housing facility is limited to only student residents and their guests and selected staff. Residents use their student ID as a swipe card/key for access to the housing facility and dorm rooms.

The College for Creative Studies has one of the safest college campuses in Michigan. The following are campus crime statistics.
