And here is a RIDICULOUSLY LONG missive from LU’s operations department with everything anyone needs to know for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Lesley Community Members:
Welcome to Academic Year 2014-2015! Please review the information provided below regarding Administrative, Technology and Library services. In addition, you can find information on the web under the specific service you request.
During the summer Lesley replaced its Emergency Alert system to a more robust one – RAVE. We have linked the service to your Lesley e-mail, however, due to privacy and security concerns we can’t “import” your phone or other devices. To add additional phone numbers, text, or e-mails go to https://www.getrave.com/login/lesley. If you have a problem adding additional devices contact Bill Eve at weveATlesley.edu or ext. 8825.
Public Safety operates 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
In case of emergency (medical, criminal or fire) all Lesley Community members should call the Lesley University Public Safety office at (617) 349-8888, or call 911 directly. As soon as possible, please advise Lesley Public Safety on any 911 calls related to the Lesley campus, students, faculty or staff.
Remember to always lock your office doors, even if you only leave for a few minutes. In addition, ensure that your windows are secured. Leave your valuables at home. Any valuables you have on campus (purses, wallets, cell phones, Ipads, laptops etc.) should be kept either with you or locked up for safety. Lock your vehicle and bike and do not leave valuables in plain sight.
REMEMBER to immediately report any and all suspicious activity or unknown individuals to the Public Safety Office. All non-Lesley service personnel should be escorted either by Public Safety or Physical Plant Staff.
If you have any questions regarding any Public Safety matter please contact Captain Nicole O’Leary at (617) 349-8888, nolearyATlesley.edu

Lesley University revised its smoking policy effective August 1, 2011. The Brattle Campus is a “smoke-free” campus while LUCAD, Doble and Porter Campuses remain “designated area smoking only” campuses.
Six locations have been designated as smoking areas. Please view the campus maps
These locations were selected to protect the safety of smokers, to ensure that smoke does not filter into buildings, to protect neighboring properties and to provide access to designated smoking areas on the three campuses.
The designated smoking locations are:
Please be sure to pick up any butts or trash in these designated areas.
Members of the community who violate the University Smoking Policy are required to provide their name and office location to Public Safety if requested. After an initial warning, anyone who chooses to disregard the designated smoking areas will be subject to progressive fines and other sanctions for their failure to smoke in the designated areas.
If you have any questions regarding the information provided please contact the appropriate office or Marylou Batt at mbattATlesley.edu.
