On campus, our University Police and Environmental Health and Safety Department focus on safety related issues with significant support from many other campus departments such as Residential Life, the University Health Center, the University Counseling Center, Student Involvement & Leadership and the Office of Conflict Resolution & Civic Responsibility.

Off campus, in the City of Albany, Albany City Police have jurisdiction over the areas where many of our non-resident students reside. East Greenbush Police maintain jurisdiction on the East Campus. The University works collaboratively and proactively with the City of Albany, the other local colleges, and the neighborhood associations on issues of student safety.

YOUR SAFETY, HOWEVER, BEGINS WITH YOU!!
