New signal Golf Club Road/Stubbs Road
Please note that there is a new signal at Golf Club Road/Stubbs Road. This has already helped speed up traffic coming onto campus, but there are still some bugs to be worked out.  Please exercise patience and caution when crossing at this signal, and ONLY cross when you have been given the green light . Cars approaching a green light are not watching for pedestrians.
Prepare for traffic delays due to construction
Construction on Old Quarry Road and Golf Club Road may cause additional traffic delays. Please plan your commute to DVC accordingly. 
Campus safety depends on everyone
Follow these safety tips to help you protect yourself, your belongings, and fellow students on campus:
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings and the people around you - especially if you are alone or it is dark.
  • Stay on well-traveled paths in open areas. Avoid dark, concealed, or unpopulated areas.
  • If possible, walk with a friend -- even during daylight hours.
  • Walk confidently, directly and at a steady pace.
  • If you feel you are being followed, walk quickly to areas where there are other people. If in danger, screaming or yelling loudly will attract attention.
Please be a good neighbor and consider our neighborhood
Help us preserve DVC's excellent reputation by doing your part to be a good neighbor! We understand that our students sometimes have to park on neighborhood streets at the beginning of the semester when campus parking is harder to find. If you do park off campus, please show respect for our neighbors by doing your part to keep their streets clean, quiet, and peaceful!
