Campus Safety and Security

We want 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  or (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.

How We Help You

Throughout the day, you will see our public safety officers patrolling campus and driving shuttle vans. You can request a ride, an escort, or other assistance.

Public safety officers conduct proactive patrols in each academic building and residence hall lobby. They also make sure all visitors to campus are properly signed in at the Marvin Feldman Center lobby.

Kaufman Hall Shuttle

The shuttle runs between the Feldman Center and Kaufman Hall every 15 minutes from 8 pm to 2 am when classes are in session. Outside of these hours, service is available by request. You can request the shuttle in the Feldman Center lobby or the Kaufman Hall lobby.

Public Safety Officer Escort

You can request a walking public safety escort to or from Kaufman Hall, either in the Feldman Center lobby or the Kaufman Hall lobby.
