Campus Safety

Vassar College

The Campus Safety Office is available to provide support and safety services to the campus community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Safety Officers patrol campus and staff the Campus Response Center (CRC), a dispatch center located just inside the front entrance of Main Building, around the clock. Call (845) 437-7333 any time of the day or night for emergency assistance or (845) 437-5221 for non-emergency matters.

Safety Officers also operate a Campus Safety Shuttle during the evening hours. The shuttle circles through the campus into the early morning hours. Visit Escort and Shuttle Services to see the shuttle stops and hours of operation.  

The Campus Safety Office is your link to safety information, emergency response, and after-hours services.  Call the CRC if you are in need of the Vassar Health Service EMT, an ambulance, the fire department, the Residential Living and Wellness Administrator on Call, the after-hours Counselor on Call services, or other emergency services. Stay informed, and watch for Timely Warning Notices (Emergency, Crime, and Safety Alerts) sent out from the Campus Safety Office. Please know, you will not receive emergency text alerts and phone calls if your cell phone is not on file with the College. To update your cell phone number, students should email and employees should update their personal information in Workday.

Other routine services that are provided by the Campus Safety Office include parking registration, bicycle registration, ticket appeals, and vehicle requests for activities sponsored by the College that are within a 90-mile radius of campus. Forms for these services can be found on the Campus Safety Office Forms page. 

The Campus Safety Office is located at 2500 New Hackensack Road, which is across from the Farm.
