If your off-campus residence is going to be unoccupied during Thanksgiving break, you should register the residence with the University Police. To register on-line, go to Lehigh's home page and select "Police" and access the registration form by clicking on the "Living off-campus" link or you can simply go to (http://www.lehigh.edu/~inlpd/liv_1.html).
Off-campus security is a concern of everyone. By registering your residence when you are away, you will enable our department, as well as the City of Bethlehem Police Department, to serve you better.
Also, as an extra safety precaution, be sure to make arrangements regarding mail and newspaper deliveries so they do not accumulate outside your residence.
