Hunter College Security



At Hunter College we try to provide a safe and secure environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors.

Established in 1991, the CUNY Public Safety Department was created to further ensure that those who attend any of the CUNY institutions do so in a safe and comfortable environment.

CUNY Public Safety Officers are sworn Peace Officers and have arrest authority granted to them by the City of New York. They are designated as New York City Special Patrolmen/Peace Officers. All Hunter Public Safety personnel wear distinctive uniforms and carry two-way radios. Additionally, the College has a New York State Certified Emergency Medical Unit to respond to medical emergencies on the Main Campus. These personnel are trained in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and other emergency response procedures. Hunter also has a Health Care Office, which provides various health care services to Hunter students and staff.

The campus is monitored 24 hours a day by members of the Public Safety staff. After the campus is closed, all persons entering the institution must sign in. Also, adjacent to Hunter’s West Building, on East 67th St., is New York City Police Department’s 19 Precinct.

Throughout the Hunter campus are ”Talk-Alert” boxes that are mounted on walls near elevators, stairways and female bathrooms. Talk-Alerts are to be used for all emergencies on campus.

If you have any security concerns that need to be addressed, please contact the Director of Public Safety, Joseph Foelsch -
