Walking Escort Service

The Office of Campus Security also provides an escort service, which offers a walking escort to and from campus buildings and parking fields. This service is available to the entire college community.

If a crime does occur on campus, call 911 immediately. If calling from an on-campus phone, NYIT Security will automatically be notified. Any delay in reporting an incident decreases the chances of apprehending the suspect. NYIT Security maintains a close working relationship with local police precincts and will assist you in every way possible if you become the victim of a crime.
