Options for Reporting Crimes and Incidents

The Fashion Institute of Technology encourages students, faculty, staff, and other members of its educational community to report crimes and other safety incidents promptly to any or all of the administrators below:

Department of Public Safety, Pomerantz Center, Room D442 (212) 217-7777 (staffed 24 hours per day)
Director of Public Safety (212) 217-4999 (administrative line)
Dean of Students (212) 217-3800
Title IX Coordinator (212) 217-3360

FIT encourages accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to Public Safety and to local law enforcement, when the victim of a crime elects to (or is unable to) make such a report.


In an emergency on the FIT campus, you may contact Public Safety at (212) 217-7777 or you may also use one of the red emergency phones located throughout campus buildings or one of the blue emergency phones located outside on campus.

Red Emergency Phones: The college has installed wall-mounted red emergency phones in all facilities and residence halls. The moment any red phone call button is pressed, Public Safety can identify the caller’s place of origin and dispatch personnel immediately to the scene.

Blue Emergency Phones: The college has installed blue emergency phones around the campus perimeter that connect directly to FIT’s Department of Public Safety and do not require dialing a number. You can find the phones in the following locations:
1) outside Dubinsky on 27th Street
2) outside Pomerantz on 27th Street
3) outside Goodman on 26th Street
4) outside Pomerantz on 28th Street
5) outside Dubinsky on 28th Street
6) outside Feldman on 28th Street

If you experience an off-campus emergency, call 911.
