Access to Campus

Learn the best way to get on campus and access facilities.

Garden City Campus

All parking lots at the Garden City Campus are routinely patrolled by public safety vehicle patrols, foot and bicycle patrols as well as closed-circuit TV cameras. Vehicular access to the campus is restricted from midnight to 6 a.m. when only one guarded entrance (exit) is open by the University Center. Incoming vehicles during the midnight to 6 a.m. period are checked to ascertain their purpose and will be denied access if the occupants cannot establish a legitimate reason for entering the campus. Parking is by permit only.

Each residence hall is staffed by a full-time professional residence hall director and trained graduate and undergraduate resident assistants who work with public safety and other University departments to provide and maintain facilities that are safe and secure. A residence hall staff member is on duty 24 hours a day. Access to residence halls is limited to residents and their guests. Entrances are locked 24 hours a day and interior areas are patrolled by public safety officers and residential life staff. Closed-circuit television cameras are located in each resident hall lobby and lounge areas along with in-house telephones.

Hall Attendants are on duty (during Fall and Spring semesters) from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m., 7 days a week to check the identification of all people (residents and visitors) entering the residence halls. No one is admitted without a proper photo I.D. (University I.D., or driver’s license). Visitors are permitted in the residence halls overnight only with the proper authorization from the Office of Residential Life and Housing.

During periods of extended closings, only those with approved card access will be permitted to enter residence halls.

All campus buildings (with the exception of residence halls) are accessible Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays according to class schedules. Exceptions are made for special events. Identification may be requested of anyone utilizing campus facilities.

Security Considerations, Building Access and Maintenance

Special arrangements can be made through the Department of Public Safety and Transportation (ext. 3511) for access to buildings outside of regular operating hours. Special after-hours access to buildings for employees and students may be obtained by written request to the Assistant Vice President of Public Safety and Transportation. Students requesting access must have an after-hours access card completed by a faculty member or a University administrator to be permitted access. The card is then kept on file in the Public Safety Command Center for student access verification.

All employees and students are encouraged to report any repairs they feel need the attention of facilities management. A building engineer is on duty 24 hours a day in case of emergencies. Repairs may be called into the facilities management directly to extension 3970 during business hours or Public Safety at extension 3511 all other times. In addition, lighting surveys of exterior spaces are conducted bi-monthly with the results forwarded to facilities for necessary action. Closed circuit television systems, crime prevention programs, and card access control systems are also utilized to assist in preventing and investigating crimes. Any security concerns should be addressed by contacting Public Safety at 516.877.3500.


Policies and Procedures for Safe Access to Residence Halls

Residence hall entrances are locked 24 hours a day. Access is by an individually coded University ID card programmed to access a residence hall front door, which is provided to each resident at the beginning of each semester.
