The Department of Public Safety provides regularly scheduled Public Safety escorts after evening classes. Students, faculty, and staff who would like to utilize that service should arrive at the 10th Avenue (Haaren Hall) Public Safety desk by either 8:45 pm or 10:15 pm when officers will depart for the Columbus Circle subway station.
This initiative is thanks to the Student Council and your Campus Security Advisory Committee members.
