Campus Safety


The Campus Safety Department is managed by the Nyack College Facilities Department. Campus Safety conducts security checks of campus facilities, including residence halls. A Campus Safety Officer is on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Campus Safety Department works closely with the Residence Life Staff and local police to deter, detect, report, and investigate criminal activity and other activities on campus that are related to safety and security.

Designated areas of campus facilities and the surrounding grounds are monitored by continuous video surveillance for the purpose of enhancing the security and safety of the campus community. This includes residence hall entrances, exits, and parking lots.

Student, Faculty, and Staff Responsibility: The cooperation and involvement of students, faculty, and staff in campus safety and security are essential. All members of the campus community must assume responsibility for their personal safety and the security of their property by taking simple, common sense precautions. For example, room and apartment doors should be locked at night and when unoccupied, valuable items such as stereos, cameras, and televisions should be marked with engraving instruments, and bicycles should be secured with a sturdy lock. Persons with vehicles must display a registration permit, park in their assigned area, and should always keep their vehicles locked.  Suspicious persons or situations on campus, especially in and around the residence halls, should be reported to the Campus Safety Department.
