At SUNY Ulster, students, faculty, staff and visitors can feel safe and secure in our close-knit community campus protected by our Office of Public Safety & Security. 

Feel comfortable commuting to campus and walking to your classes, knowing security staff patrols the grounds 24/7 every day of the year. Extra personnel are stationed in high traffic areas and for large special events. We also have a bike patrol on campus for added safety.  

We have a system of outdoor voice call-boxes, indicated by blue lights throughout campus. These voice boxes provide immediate access to Campus Public Safety and Security.

Our parking areas are well lit for greater visibility in the evenings, so you can feel secure walking to your car after a night class. Should you want an escort, you can use a blue call-box or your phone to call security.

Creating a safe and secure environment comes through the cooperation of all members of the campus population.  With this collaborative effort in mind, anyone witnessing a criminal act, an emergency situation or situations that appear to have the potential for criminal actions or emergencies, should go immediately to any telephone and call Security.
