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.

General Fire Safety Information

At most campuses a Fire Warden is assigned to each floor and is responsible for implementing the fire safety policy and evacuation during an fire emergency.

  • If you notice a fire - pull the fire alarm pull station - do not waste time calling public safety. (Once activated, the alarm goes directly to a central station and they automatically contact NYFD).
  • If a "pull station" is not close to you then,
    • Activate one of the silver wall mounted "Talk-Alert" boxes
    • Dial 1-4444 on a main campus telephone
    • Dial 911 on your cell phone.
    • Fire extinguishers are located on all floors of all buildings.
  • A Fire Warden is assigned to each floor and is responsible for implementing the fire safety policy and evacuation during an fire emergency. 
  • It is important to follow their instructions, they are there for your safety
  • Stairway "A" is the primary staircase to be used for evacuation, unless told otherwise.
  • Disabled individuals should enter the stairway and stay on the landing of their floor. NYFD will come and get you!
  • A delay in public address announcements after a fire alarm sounds is usually because public safety is investigating the source of the alarm to determine what needs to be done.
    • Always listen for public address announcements.
  • If there is a fire or smoke condition in, or near an elevator shaft, the fire alarms will sound on all floors.
    • Elevators will get automatically re-called to the lowest floor/lobby.
  • Some elevators may be re-called to the main floor due to a fire.
  • After a fire alarm is activated, the alarm and the elevators can not be reset until the NY Fire Department authorizes it and gives the "all clear".
  • Evacuations may only occur on the "fire floor" and one floor above, and one floor below and not the entire building.
  • Organized "Fire Brigades" will respond to the floor below the fire floor.
