• Safety Guide

    New York City is one of the safest big cities in the United States. Nevertheless, The New School is ever mindful of the personal safety of everyone studying, working, and visiting on our urban campus. This is a general responsibility of all members of our community but first and foremost of the Department of Campus Safety.

    For the convenience of students, faculty, and staff, and as required by law, the Department of Campus Safety publishes a security guide that brings together in one document:

    • University rules and policies designed to keep our community safe
    • Procedures for reporting emergencies and other security-related incidents
    • Guidelines for responding to a variety of possible situations in which people may need professional assistance or advice
    • Campus crime statistics

    Download the Campus Safety Guide or bookmark it on your computer or mobile device and review the contents so you will know how to respond should a security problem arise.

    Also, read The New School’s policies and guidelines for managing campus-wide or city-wide emergencies, which are posted on this website under the heading Safety and Preparedness.

    The Campus Safety Department is located at 68 Fifth Ave, mezzanine level. The office is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The telephone number is 212.229.5101.
