Announcement regarding the incident on October 20th

Greetings from the Office of International Affairs. We understand that many students and our partners are still concerned about the incident that happened at First Graduate Dormitory on October 20th and about campus safety in general. We would like to clarify that the October 20th incident was an isolated incident resulting from personal issues and not a random act of violence. One of the students involved was a resident at the dormitory, hence the proximity of the incident to the dormitory. The NTU student involved is currently receiving rehab at the NTU Hospital. Immediately after the incident, the University called a Campus Security Meeting to discuss the incident and campus security measures. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the Office of International Affairs.

The Campus Security Center has increased patrol activities to continue to provide a safe campus. Dormitories require IDs for access, and, as per dormitory rules, visitors require identification and are allowed only during visiting hours. Violation of dormitory rules can result in forced withdrawal from the dormitory.

The University will continue to update relevant information in English. The Campus Security Center holds regular meetings to ensure campus security. However, we would like to remind students to be vigilant of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity. If you need someone to talk to, please do not hesitate to visit the Student Counseling Center. For any suggestions or concerns, please contact the Office of International Affairs.
