TIMELY PUBLIC SAFETY WARNING

Warning to Hunter students and Faculty: Public Safety recently became aware of an internet scam where the web site, or e-mail, appears to be another Hunter member asking you to become a "secret shopper". In this scam the unknown person would mail you a check  and request that you deposit it and immediately go out and purchase a certain gift card or product and mail it back to them. Within two days after depositing the check that was mailed to you the bank will contact you to say that the check was worthless or insufficient funds. Please be aware of these various internet scams.

Using Your OneCard (Hunter ID) at Hunter

This is a friendly reminder from the Office of the Dean of Students regarding Hunter College's policy on using your OneCard while on campus at Hunter College. These measures are in place for your own safety and that of the Hunter community.

  1. All members of the college community are responsible for having their Hunter OneCard with them while on campus at all times.
  2. Your Hunter OneCard is non-transferrable and may not be used by any other person, for any reason.
  3. Allowing other persons to use your Hunter OneCard to gain entry on to Hunter's campus or to use campus facilities is a violation of Hunter College's policy and may result in that person receiving a summons for Trespassing.
  4. Improper use of your Hunter ID may also result in your card being deactivated.

For more information about the One Card, please visit the One Card website.

 

 

Crime Prevention Programs

Awareness & Orientation Programs

Crime Prevention programs on personal safety and theft prevention are sponsored by the Department of Public Safety at various campuses throughout the year. Public safety personnel facilitate programs for student, parent, faculty, and new employee orientations, student organizations as well as orientation programs for Brookdale Resident Advisers (RA's) and new residents. Programs provide individuals with a variety of educational strategies and tips on how to protect themselves from sexual assault, theft, internet dating, identity theft and other crimes. Fire safety is included in all orientation programs.

 In addition to the college website, crime prevention pamphlets that include various safety tips and encourage the reporting of crime on campus are prepared and distributed periodically to students. Whenever possible, public safety invites NYPD units specializing in sex crimes and crime prevention to present programs to members of the Hunter community.

 Additionally, students may sign up for CUNY Alert.  CUNY Alert is a new emergency notification system that will enable the University's campuses to advise students, faculty and staff of an emergency and provide timely information to protect lives and minimize campus disruption. Depending upon the severity of the incident, CUNY Alert messages can range from specific instructions to general warnings. These notifications will be sent to members of the CUNY community who have signed up for CUNY Alert. Messages can be received via cell phone (text and/or voice), land line telephone and e-mail. You must "opt in" to receive alerts, and you can choose your preferred format or formats to receive the messages.
