Administrative staff in the Office of Campus Life advise the individual groups and governing bodies.
Five of Millikin’s Greek organizations own and operate their chapter houses adjacent to the campus. Students who are not provided meals in their chapter house may purchase a University board contract at the regular residential board rate. Any upper-class student living in a residence hall may petition to move into a Greek chapter house at the end of his/her first semester of membership, if space permits. All members who wish to move into a fraternity or sorority chapter house must complete a notification form that may be obtained from the Office of Campus Life. The form must be approved by the chapter president and the Dean of Campus Life. Room and board fees for Greek chapter houses vary slightly among the groups. Chapter houses are considered affiliated properties and on-campus housing. Therefore, all University policies apply to students residing in these facilities.
Affiliation with a fraternity or sorority is achieved through a mutual selection process known as membership recruitment. Formal membership recruitment for students occurs at the beginning of the spring semester and includes an orientation program during which Interfraternity, Multicultural Greek, and Panhellenic Council officers explain the recruitment process. Continuous recruitment periods occur throughout the year specifically targeting transfer students, and sophomores, juniors, and senior students. Students are encouraged to consider all chapters in order to make the best evaluation of which one most closely meets their personal expectations and values.
Recruitment programs, new member education, and initiation are restricted to full-time students who are in good standing with Millikin. To become a member, a student must have successfully completed one college/University semester and be currently enrolled for at least 12 credit hours. Individual chapters have specific academic requirements for affiliation and initiation that are presented during recruitment activities. Eligibility for membership must be certified by the Office of Campus Life at least 48 hours preceding the membership induction. Any questions regarding how to get involved in Fraternity and Sorority Life should be directed to the Office of Campus Life.

Parental Notification Practices
Millikin University strives to cultivate personal growth and responsibility in its students as they learn to establish their own independence. However, the University also believes in providing parents with the sensitive information they need to know in order to advise their students effectively. Parental notification is initiated when a member of the Student Development staff believes that parental involvement will help the student by providing support for their health and safety, academic success and/or personal development. Furthermore, Sections 951 and 952 of the 1998 Higher Education Amendment enables institutions of higher education to notify the parents or legal guardians when their student under the age of 21 has been found in violation of the institution’s disciplinary code for drugs and alcohol. Parental notification is in addition to the intervention and education already offered students when such infractions are brought to the University’s attention.
Parents may be notified:
- when The Office of Campus Life receives notification from University staff and/or local law enforcement officials that a student has been found to be involved in a drug or alcohol-related violation during an academic session or while living in University owned housing. Violations that may trigger parental notification include:
- the student demonstrates a disregard for his or her personal safety or the safety of others;
- medical attention to any person, including the student, is required as a result of the student's alcohol related behavior;
- the student causes property damage;
- the student operates a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol;
- the student is involved in multiple minor incidents involving alcohol;
- the student's alcohol-related behavior negatively impacts the learning environment.
- when there is reason to believe that a student's health and well-being are in jeopardy. The University reserves the right to assess what is determined as potential jeopardy, including potential harm to self and/or others.
A professional staff member in Student Affairs will encourage the student to make the initial call to a parent or guardian. After the determination of a violation, students will be afforded an opportunity to contact their parent(s) or guardian before the university will issue a notification. In certain cases, written notification will be utilized in lieu of verbal contact.
Parents/guardians interested in gaining further information about their student’s academic records are encouraged to discuss this information with their student or request that the student sign a written consent to have this information shared with his/her parents. Consent forms are available at the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairts. Parents should be aware that the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits the University from sharing student records (not including the above exceptions) without the student’s written consent.
Please direct all questions regarding Millikin University’s Parental Notification Practices to the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs (217) 424-6395.
All vehicles that park on campus must be registered with Public Safety and display a valid Millikin University parking permit. Permits are available through Public Safety. Residential Students are only allowed to register one vehicle, commuter students may register two vehicles. The fee schedule for permits is: Residential $100.00, Commuter $50.00. Parking Permits are valid for one year (08/01-07/31).
Students are required to park according to the guidelines outlined in the Parking Information brochure published by the Millikin University Department of Public Safety. Copies of this brochure are available at the Department of Public Safety in Walker Hall. Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to reserved spaces such as visitor only (Millikin students are not considered visitors), handicapped parking, and designated fire lanes. Students who fail to abide by the University’s parking regulations are subject to parking tickets and/or having their vehicles towed.
During weather related emergencies (ie. snow and flooding conditions), students may be asked to relocate their vehicles so that repairs and maintenance can be facilitated. Students must also be aware that certain city streets around campus are “snow emergency routes.” Vehicles parked on these routes in violation of city ordinances will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Residence Life Operations
Housekeeping service is provided in residence hall common areas including bathrooms (1 to 2 times per week and as needed), lounges and hallways. Students are responsible for cleaning their individual rooms and making sure that the bathrooms and showers are organized enough to be easily cleaned.
In each residence hall, washers and dryers are available for use by residents. The cost of using the Laundry facilities is assessed to each residential student’s account at the start of each semester. Check with your Resident Assistant (RA) for specific laundry room locations. You are encouraged to stay with your laundry at all times. The University does not take responsibility for theft of personal belongings.
Maintenance concerns should be reported to the Resident Assistant. The Resident Assistant will supply students with the correct information on how to resolve their concern. Typically, the RA will put in a Work Order through Facilities to complete maintenance.
Refrigerators and Microwaves
Students may bring their own refrigerators into the residence halls; however, they may not exceed 1.5 amps or be larger than 3 cubic feet. Personal microwaves are not allowed in the residence halls unless they are part of a Microfridge unit. In most residence halls, there is a common microwave available for use in kitchen or other designated space.
Student Housing Council
The Student Housing Council (SHC) is the students’ voice in the operation of Millikin residence halls. Students interested in community and/or student government experience are encouraged to check with their Resident Assistant on how to get involved in SHC.
The Resident Assistant (RA) is a trained paraprofessional student-staff member on each floor selected due to their interest in helping other students. With your help, the RA will maintain harmony and a sense of respect in your community. Primarily, they are a resource for you—there to assist you in all facets of your college experience. As you will discover, although RAs spend much time with their community, they have other responsibilities in their position (duty, training, meetings, etc.) and most importantly, they are full-time students at Millikin.
Campus Life Professional Staff are full time professional staff members with at least a Master’s degree in Higher Education or related field. The professional staff is responsible for overall supervision, administration, crisis management and emergency on-call response, and student conduct in the Residence Halls. Our professional staff can be found in the Office of Campus Life located in the University Commons, on the third floor.
The Campus Life Life staff are University officials charged with creating an educational environment and maintaining respect in the residence halls.
Each residential student is issued a cable account through our service provider, Comcast Xfinity. Basic cable service, on-demand programming, and other features are provided at no cost to the student. Students may choose to upgrade their service through their Comcast Xfinity account.
The University Commons (UC) s a vibrant multi-functional and fusion-type facility housing both the student center of Millikin as well as the Staley Library. The University Commons is the “front door” of Millikin’s campus and acts as the main gathering space for the University and broader community. You will find that the UC provides an exciting and functional place for the vast majority of University events on our campus. The University Commons houses student lounge areas, conference and meeting rooms, collaboration spaces, our centralized dining facility, and several University offices, including Catering and Dining Services, the Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement, the Office of Student Development, the Oberhelman Leadership Development Center, the Center for Academic and Professional Performance, the Writing Center, and the MAC Lab. The UC also houses the University Commons Welcome Area Desk (UCWAD), WJMU Campus Radio Station, the student-run newspaper, the Decaturian, and many other amenities and services.
The UC is, most certainly, the living room of the campus; the place where all members of the Millikin community meet, converse, and grow together. The UC is open to all members of the University family—students, faculty, administration, alumni, and guests. Through various committees and staff, the UC provides a place where cultural, intellectual, social, and recreational programs bridge classroom learning with out-of-classroom experiences. All of these events encourage self-directed activity and give maximum opportunity for leadership development and citizenship. We seek opportunities for Performance Learning in all that we do!
Escorted guests are welcome to enjoy the services and amenities of the University Commons. Appropriate behavior and citizenship are expected of all guests. Guest privileges are at the discretion of the staff. For further information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 217-424-6395.
Millikin Public Safety Department
The Department of Public Safety is located in Walker Hall, first floor, north end. The department operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is a combination department comprised of both sworn police officers and non-sworn security officers and dispatchers. The Millikin University Police Department was established by the Board of Trustees in May 2013 in accordance with the Illinois Private College Campus Police Act (110 ILCS/1020). As outlined by that act, Millikin University Police Officers have full peace officer authority and arrest powers, including the ability to enforce city ordinances, county ordinances, traffic laws (on public ways contiguous to university property), and state statutes.
A dispatcher is always in the dispatch center and can be reached by calling 217-464-8888 (8888 campus phone), or through one of the “blue light” phones located about campus. The dispatch center is also the after-hours switchboard for the University. The dispatcher monitors a variety of campus alarm systems, the access control system, and local/national media for weather and crisis information.
The Public Safety Department is responsible for a wide variety of functions on campus, including both foot and motorized patrols, access control, crisis response, parking enforcement, risk management, and various life safety checks. During patrols, both Police and Security Officers are establishing a presence to deter criminal activity, conducting life safety checks, and proactively engaging our community members. Public Safety staff members attend regular training on procedures, investigations, report writing, crisis management, first aid and CPR/AED.
For Public Safety assistance on campus dial “8888” from a campus phone or 217-464-8888. Decatur/Macon County does offer 911 service for life threatening emergencies, remember to dial “7-911” when calling from a campus phone.
In event of any emergency in any campus owned building—fire, illness, accident, etc.—notify Public Safety at 217-464-8888. For life threatening emergencies, please also contact 911.
False alarms and genuine fire alarms are indistinguishable. Therefore, students should follow the fire procedures whenever the alarm sounds. Failure to evacuate appropriately may result in injury and will result in disciplinary action.
When the fire alarm sounds:
- Calmly proceed to the nearest exit and leave the building. (If the situation allows, close your residence door as you leave.)
- If in a closed room, feel the door with the back of our hand before exiting. If the door is hot use an alternate exit.
- If an alternative exit is not available, seal off the room you are in by stuffing towels, etc. in vents and door cracks. Call 911 and/or Public Safety (464-8888) and tell them you are trapped and give your location. If practical, wait by a window and signal for help.
- Do not re-enter the building until instructed to do so by a staff member
When notified that a tornado has been sighted in this area:
- Leave the room and close the door (unlocked).
- Move to the basement. If there is no basement, sit in the corridor away from windows on the lowest floor of the building.
- Do not re-enter room until danger is past and the “all clear” is provided by a staff member.
