Public Safety and Emergencies

In order to provide a safe and secure environment, the Hunter College campuses are monitored 24 hours a day by members of the Department of Public Safety. Public Safety personnel are available to provide assistance with public safety, security and health emergencies at all times. In the event of an emergency, Public Safety can be reached in the following manner:

Emergencies: Located throughout the main campus and Brookdale are silver wall mounted boxes marked “Emergency.” These boxes are known as “Talk Alerts” and pushing the call button on the box will connect you directly to the public safety desk. You may also dial 4444 from any interior campus telephone, or dial (212) 772-4444 from your cellular telephone.

Please remember to please state your emergency and your location on campus. Below are emergency and non-emergency phone numbers for specific campus sites. Note: The new Lois V. and Samuel Silberman School of Social Work/CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College building is located at 2180 Third Avenue New York, N.Y. The MFA building is at 205 Hudson Street New York NY 10013.
