Alice Lloyd College employs and trains its own First Response Team. First Response Team Members are on duty twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

- Keep residence halls, rooms, and office doors locked.
- Keep bicycles chained and locked.
- Be alert to dangerous situations or suspicious activities.
- Report them as soon as possible to a First Response Team Member.
- When contacting the First Response Team Member give as much detail as possible regarding the event or suspicion.
ID cards are issued to all members of the Alice Lloyd College community who are identified as either resident or commuter classification, full or part-time status. These students are issued an appropriate identification card at registration.
Resident students will be asked at any time to present IDs for meals and event attendance. Students may be requested to produce ID upon request of a member of the Pippa Passes Police Dept. or other authorized agents of the College. Refusal or failure to produce your ID card may result in referral to the Dean of Students.
Alcohol and Drugs
Alice Lloyd College does not permit the use of or the possession of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs on campus. Improper use of any drug(s) will not be tolerated. Violators will be disciplined. If the College determines that a student violates this policy, that student will be referred to the appropriate campus official and all disciplinary action administered as outlined in your student handbook. “Campus” includes Lots X and C, the baseball field, and the area between the two stop signs on either end of campus. NO student or employee is to bring any alcoholic beverage or illegal drugs to the campus. Possession, use or sale of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs will be referred to the appropriate campus official and all disciplinary action will be administered as outlined in your student handbook.
Alice Lloyd College has accepted a policy which prohibits sexual harassment. A copy of this policy can be found in the Student Services Office.
Alice Lloyd College students may not visit the resident areas (including hallways and stairwells) of members of the opposite sex. Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action.
Dormitory visitors are subject to all Alice Lloyd College rules and regulations. ALC students are welcome in the public areas of the dormitories from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily. All other visitors have to have a pass signed by a Student Services staff member. Visitors must be registered by their hosts/hostesses at all campus social events they wish to attend.
Alice Lloyd College prohibits the possession or display of pornography, including internet pornography. A copy of the College policy on internet usage can be found in the Student Services Office.

Alice Lloyd College requires that all motor vehicles using the campus be registered with the Pippa Passes Police Dept. To register your vehicle you must complete a vehicle registration form located in the Pippa Passes Police Dept.
Motorbikes and/or motorcycles are subject to the same regulations as cars and must be registered with the Pippa Passes Police Dept. Any member of the College community who fails to register a vehicle that is being used on campus may be fined in addition to any other violations. Any vehicle on the campus (whether registered or not) may be towed at the owner’s expense and liability. Continued disregard of the stated rules and regulations related to parking regulations and vehicle registration guidelines may result in the loss of driving privileges.
Parking on Campus
All Alice Lloyd College students are assigned parking by the number of cumulative hours they have obtained. Roadside parking is designated for commuter students and staff, except between the hours of 5:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. In each parking area there will be several parking spaces marked off in yellow. These spaces are for faculty, staff, and maintenance only. Students will be ticketed for “wrong area” if discovered in one of these spaces.
Alice Lloyd College assumes no responsibility or risk for any vehicle, its occupants, or property contained therein or thereon while parked or driven on Alice Lloyd College property. The Pippa Passes Police Dept. will issue tickets to illegally parked vehicles and, if necessary, tow vehicles at the owner’s expense.
All roadways on campus are fire lanes to ensure that emergency vehicles have access to all buildings and residence halls. Motor vehicles parked on or along fire lanes may be towed off campus at the owner’s expense and liability.
Because the Alice Lloyd campus is primarily residential, there is a considerable amount of pedestrian traffic, which necessitates a strict policy toward traffic enforcement. Persons violating these policies may have traffic charges filed against them and may also be subject to disciplinary action through the Student Services Office and/or remanded to the Knott County District Court in Hindman, Kentucky. The action taken may include the loss of campus driving privileges, a fine, social probation, a combination of penalties, or suspension from the College.
All Kentucky State vehicle and traffic laws will be enforced on campus and the Pippa Passes Police Dept. will issue tickets for violations when necessary. Alice Lloyd College reserves the right to alter or change any or all the above stated regulations as needed. Students will be given ample notice of such changes.
Appeals of Parking
Appeals of parking violations must be made within seven days at the Student Services Office between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday. Failure to file an appeal within this seven-day period will result in the loss of the right to appeal the violation or associated fine. Persistent violators may have their campus registration revoked, and their vehicles may be towed off campus at the registrant’s expense and liability.
Visitors and Temporary Registration
Temporary Registration will be available to members of the College community who may find it necessary to have an unregistered vehicle on campus for unforeseen or special circumstances (i.e., due to vehicle service or other similar circumstances).
Visitors with automobiles will be assigned a temporary parking place while they are on campus. Hosts are responsible for obtaining a visitor’s parking sticker from the Pippa Passes Police Dept. Other visitors may receive a temporary parking sticker from the Pippa Passes Police Dept. and park in the assigned designated area.
Loss of Parking Decal should be reported to the Pippa Passes Police Dept immediately. The decal number will then be cancelled and a new one will be issued at the cost of $10.00.
If you are victimized and need to talk to someone, you can reach the Alice Lloyd College Counselor at (606) 368-6110.

The College reserves the right to confiscate firearms and fireworks and take appropriate action. Firearm and fire code violations are viewed as major violations. For more information on fire code violations on campus and in the dorms, please click here (pdf).
Fire and General Evacuation
If a fire condition is discovered in a building, you should take the following actions:
- Immediately evacuate the building. As you leave, notify other occupants. Activate a fire alarm pull station.
- Close room and/or hallway and stairwell doors as you evacuate.
Once you leave the building, do not re-enter for any reason.
The purpose of any evacuation is to empty a building or area of all occupants as quickly and safely as possible.
- In most cases that require evacuation of a building (fire, explosion, bomb threat), occupants should proceed to a clear or safe location away from the building, but where they can be accounted for. First Response Team members may direct you to other locations. Please comply with their requests in order to effect a safe evacuation.
- Evacuation of persons with disabilities will be given the highest priority. They will be evacuated by the most expeditious and safe means available. If you are aware of person(s) with disabilities in your building who require assistance, please notify a First Response Team member.
- When evacuating the building, do not run. Walk and remain quiet. Be observant of your surroundings and know a second means of escape from your building in the event that your primary route is obstructed.
- Occupants, once outside the building, should congregate with co-workers to make sure that everyone has evacuated safely. If you discover that someone is unaccounted for, notify a First Response Team member.
- Intentional evading or refusal to evacuate will result in notice of violation. In residence halls, the Resident Assistants and/or First Response Team members will go room to room to ensure that evacuation of the residence hall is completed and evacuation procedures are followed.
As stated in the Student and Faculty Handbook at Alice Lloyd College, the abuse of any life safety equipment in any campus building or facility is a serious violation of College policy. Abuse of any life safety equipment is also a violation of state and federal law.
Life Safety Equipment is defined but not limited to:
- Fire alarms
- Smoke and Heat Detectors
- Fire extinguishers
- Alarm panels
- Emergency exits
- Directional or Warning Signs
- Street Signs
- Safety Lighting
- First Aid Kits or other Emergency Kits
Fire/Life Safety Equipment
All dorms are equipped with fire extinguishers located in the hallway of each wing and accessible to all rooms. Each dormitory room is equipped with a smoke detector. It is the responsibility of students to ensure that all life safety equipment is not tampered with in any manner. Students are encouraged to properly use fire extinguishers when warranted for fire safety. If you are uncertain how to properly use the extinguisher, contact your RA, Dorm Director, or Pippa Passes Police Dept. If you suspect there is a problem with your extinguisher, contact the Pippa Passes Police Dept. immediately. If you have cause to discharge your extinguisher for fire control you must immediately advise your RA and the Pippa Passes Police Dept. to report the fire and use of the extinguisher. If a dorm extinguisher is missing, discharged for other than a fire or a non-reported fire, or tampered with in any way as to cause the extinguisher to be inoperable or unavailable for emergency use, the violator will be referred to the Dean of Students for appropriate action.
False fire alarms and willful damaging of any life safety equipment is not only an inconvenience to fellow students but constitutes a real danger. Fire extinguishers, pull stations, alarm bells, smoke and heat detectors and alarm panels are in place for your safety. Use of these systems for anything other than fire emergencies, abuse of these systems, or the intentional causing of a false fire alarm will result in a fine and possible dismissal from College housing. (Tampering includes moving, modifying, obstructing, or in any way altering life safety equipment.)
Open fire is not permitted in any residence hall or campus building. The intentional setting of any fire which is not authorized or designed for a recognized and accepted purpose and practiced with proper safety precautions will, in effect, result in the filing of conduct charges.
The use of extension cords and multiple outlet plug adapters (Octopus Cords) is strictly prohibited. Power strips with overload circuit protectors may be used. No hot plates or electrical cooking devices are permitted, with the exception of a microwave. All electrical appliances (includes refrigerators) must be approved by the Student Services Office. Any items that may be confiscated, as indicated above, will be held for safekeeping until the owner claims it for removal from campus. Such items may be claimed at the Student Services Office during business hours. Failure to claim these items at the conclusion of the current school year will forfeit rights to the item(s) and the College will dispose of them as is appropriate. Any items that are confiscated which are illegal will be disposed of in an appropriate manner.
The following information is offered as a guideline to aid you in determining what action you should take in the event of severe weather.
Tornado WATCH: This means conditions are such that storms capable of producing a tornado may develop.
Tornado WARNING: This means that either a tornado has been sighted or it is highly probable that one will develop. Persons should seek immediate shelter in a basement or lower floor, interior corridors, or interior rooms. If you are in an open-span area such as a gymnasium, auditorium, or warehouse, go to the wall farthest from windows or glass, crouch down against the wall, and protect your head with your arms. Stay away from windows and exterior doors.
Severe Thunderstorm WATCH: Conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
