Access Policy
During business hours, the College (excluding housing facilities) will be open to students, parents/guardians, employees, contractors, guests and invitees.

During non-business hours, access to the campus grounds by members of the local community is permitted as long as they do not pose a threat to the security requirements of our College and as long as their behavior is in keeping with the academic environment.

Guests and invitees are permitted on campus to attend College functions. Individuals entering campus buildings must have a valid reason for their presence, such as conducting college business, neighborhood residents using the College library or visiting residents during established visitation periods.

Campus Entrance
The College has one vehicular and pedestrian entrance at West 263rd Street, which is manned by security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The perimeter of the property is fenced and a gate at West 261st Street can be opened to allow entrance and egress to emergency vehicles.

Access to Residence Halls
When open, all residence hall entrances are staffed from 3 p.m. until 7 a.m. by personnel directed by the Office of Housing and Residence Life or the Office of Campus Safety and Security. Every other entrance/exit is locked and alarmed.

All visitors must be signed into any residence hall by the resident host. All visitors must present valid photo identification, such as a driver’s license or college identification card in order to enter. A record of all visitors is maintained at the front desk of each residence hall. Those found in the residence halls not properly registered at the front desk are required to leave immediately.

The Office of Campus Safety and Security staff prepares periodic maintenance and security hazard forms which are submitted to the Facilities Department to correct hazards such as poor lighting, faulty locks, broken windows, and other conditions that may have an impact on campus safety and security.

Security Officers also prepare periodic reports to notify the administration of physical hazards, such as overgrown shrubbery, insufficient lighting or needed improvements in the perimeter fencing.
