Crime Prevention Tips

Don't be a victim of opportunity!

Hunter College is a very safe college community.  Fortunately, incidents of violent crime are virtually non-existent.  However, things do occur and no matter how infrequent or how minor a crime may be, when you are the victim, it is serious, frustrating, and at best inconvenient. 

 The members of the Public Safety Department work very hard everyday to try to protect you and your property.  While on patrol, officers frequently remind students and staff to watch their valuables. The key is  "AWARENESS."  By not placing yourself, or your property, in a vulnerable situation you can avoid becoming a victim of a crime of opportunity. 

 Don't leave your backpacks, and laptops unattended! The safety tips on these pages are designed to give you the information you need to protect yourself and your property.

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.
