University to install new door barricades

The university is in the process of installing new door barricades on the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses, Public Safety Director Bob Wachowski said in an email.

The measure, Wachowski said, will allow the university in lockdown situations “to secure the classroom door from outside threats.” He added that Facilities Operations will work throughout the quarter to complete the project.
