How do I report a crime?

On-Campus/In Person

Since the LCC Police Department and Parking Department is staffed 24 hours a day, individuals may report a crime or other emergency on the Main Campus at room 2110 of the Gannon Building, or on the West Campus at room N181.

Each incident is investigated by a professional police officer.

Our follow-up activities strive to identify and prosecute criminals, recover stolen property and encourage restitution, when possible.


A crime that occurs off-campus should be reported to the police department having legal jurisdiction for that area.

If you are unsure of which department that is, call (517)483-1800 and we will assist you.

Can someone let me into a building after hours?

All employees who have a key and want to enter a campus building after hours are encouraged to contact the LCC Police Department Dispatcher at (517)483-1800 or in person for their own safety.  Persons who do not have a key and request access to a building after hours will be required to show two pieces of identification and state their reason for requesting admission.

Information on Cancelations and Closings

The college doesn't often close, but if we do, here's how to find out if you have class:

Statement regarding inclement weather

It is not an easy decision to close Lansing Community College due to inclement weather. Many factors are taken into consideration including the severity of conditions and the level of threat in the weather forecast. Since students, faculty and staff travel from a broad geographic area, it is nearly impossible to come to a decision that is appropriate for everyone since weather conditions are rarely uniform across the area. A conscientious effort is made to arrive at a reasonable decision considering all these factors.

LCC does not encourage anyone to take unnecessary risks in order to work or attend classes. If the College is open during adverse weather conditions, it is each driver's responsibility to decide whether to travel to the College. Since LCC students are adults and the College is educating its students for the workplace, we have a closing policy more like area businesses and governmental agencies and less like K-12 schools.
