Campus Safety and Security
We are here to ensure your safety at all times, anywhere on campus. A safe atmosphere enhances the FIT experience for all community members and visitors.
Public safety officers are on duty in each FIT building, and we conduct regular patrols. Our director and deputy director have backgrounds in law enforcement, and we work closely and cooperatively with the New York City Police Department’s 10th Precinct.
For 24/7 assistance in an on-campus emergency, call the Public Safety Department at extension 7-7777 ((212) 217-7777). You may also use one of the red emergency phones located throughout FIT's buildings or one of the blue phones outside on campus.
If you have an off-campus emergency, call 911.
