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. Call (845) 437-7333 any time of the day or night for emergency assistance or (845) 437-5221 for non-emergency matters. Emergency Blue Light phones are located throughout campus and can be used for contacting Campus Safety.

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.

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.  

Other routine services that are provided by the Campus Safety Office include parking/vehicle 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. 

To stay informed and receive Timely Warning Notices sent out from the Campus Safety Office, confirm your cell phone is on file with the College. To update your cell phone number, students should email and employees should update their contact information in Workday.
