NYU Campus Safety

What to Expect

Campus security for New York University is provided by the NYU Department of Campus Safety. Under the leadership of the Vice President, Global Campus Safety, the department is comprised of over 300 uniformed officers. Campus Safety operates 24 hours a day servicing both on campus and non-campus locations with vehicular and foot patrols, emergency response, building security and the Safe Ride program.

All residence halls have a Campus Safety Officer posted in the lobby of the building 24 hours a day. When entering their residence hall, residents must show their NYUCard with their hall validation sticker. All guests must be signed in by their resident host.

Fire Safety

All residence halls used for Summer Housing have central fire alarm systems complete with smoke detectors throughout the building and within each resident’s room. In addition, automatic wet sprinklers are present in all public corridors and within each resident’s room. Residents will receive residence hall-specific information about fire safety and evacuation procedures when they check-in.

Smoking is prohibited in all areas of NYU residence halls, including resident suites and apartments. The use or possession of candles, incense, and halogen lamps is prohibited in all NYU residence halls. Residents and guests who fail to comply fully with applicable fire safety procedures, or who otherwise violate rules and regulations related to fire safety, will be subject to disciplinary action.
