Campus Safety and Security

The safety of students, visitors, faculty, and staff is a priority of Athens Technical College. Police and security officers are responsible for responding to on-campus emergencies and safety issues.

Safety Escorts
Students who would like a safety escort from classes to their vehicles should contact campus security at (706) 621-9817 on the Athens Campus or (706)-213-2100 on the Elbert County Campus. Staff members at the Greene County (706-453-7435) or Walton County (770-207-3130) campuses will assist students at those locations.

Emergency Action Plan
Each classroom and laboratory contains a posted emergency action plan for fire or hazardous weather conditions. The plan includes evacuation instructions in case of emergency. Please take a moment to review the plan in each of your classrooms at the beginning of the term.

Emergency Contacts
In the event of fire, personal injury, or criminal action, someone witnessing the incident should notify the nearest instructor or staff member immediately. That person should also notify the director of safety and security (706-355-5039) or the vice president for student affairs (706-355-5029) immediately. If an emergency occurs on the Elbert (706-213-2100), Greene (706-453-7435), or Walton (770-207-3130) campuses, contact the respective campus director immediately.

RAVE Alert
Athens Technical College uses the Rave Alert System to send emergency notification information to faculty, staff, and students. The college is required by federal law to provide this type of service.

Athens Technical College is a Tobacco Free Campus. Tobacco and electronic smoking devices are prohibited on all campuses, with the exception of inside personal vehicles.

Skateboards and Rollerblades on Campus
Athens Technical College has prohibited the use of skateboards and rollerblades on campus property. No one may operate a skateboard or use rollerblades within campus buildings or on campus stairs, benches, sidewalks, walkways, ramps, parking lots, or lawn areas. This policy will prevent many unwanted injuries, making the college safer for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. This policy will be enforced at all campus and adult learning center locations of Athens Technical College.
