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.



Reporting Incidents or Crimes to Public Safety

To report a crime, emergency, suspicious act or fire, please contact any public safety officer at any campus. Suspicious activities may also be reported on this website. Just go to Contact Us, then click on Silent Witness.

Reporting a Crime

All crimes against person and property should be reported as soon as possible to the Office of Public Safety. This helps us apprehend criminals and make strategic decisions about the deployment of security resources. Incidents can be reported in person in the Public Safety office (B-122 in the West Building), by phone (212-772-4444) if the crime is in process, or to any uniformed officer on campus. The Office of Public Safety will assist you in reporting a crime to the NYPD as necessary.

Even if you do not want to pursue action with the College or the criminal justice system, please make a confidential report which does not reveal your identity to the Public Safety Office. This helps us keep an accurate record of the number and nature of incidents, determine whether there is a pattern of crime and we need to redeploy our security officers, and alert the campus community to a potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the crime statistics of the College.
