• Safety & Security

  • The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is one of our top priorities at Yeshiva University. As part of the YU Department of Administrative Services, the Department of Safety and Security is committed to providing and maintaining the highest quality public safety services at our campuses in Manhattan: the Wilf Campus in Washington Heights, the Beren Campus in midtown Manhattan and the Brookdale Center in Greenwich Village, as well as the Samuel H. Wang Yeshiva University High School for Girls in Queens.

    Our security officers are posted in all University buildings on the three campuses as well as in all residence halls 24 hours a day when school is in session. We also provide additional coverage for special events.

    Please contact us immediately in such cases as theft or vandalism, suspected intruders, dangerous conditions, medical emergencies, fire or smell of smoke. Additionally, we operate a regular schedule of shuttle services for the Manhattan campuses, including custom group transportation, and are here to help you with your parking questions and requests.

    Safety Tips

    We have provided safety tips that are essential reading for everyone in the Yeshiva University community and include important telephone numbers, addresses and other contact information. Please take a moment to review.

    Daily Crime and Fire Safety Logs

    A daily Crime Log and Fire Safety Log for all campuses is maintained at the Security Department office on each campus.  The logs for the most recent 60-day period are available for public inspection, upon request, during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, and information for prior periods is available upon request to the Security Department, with at least 2 business days’ prior notice.

    These logs include all crimes, fire-related incidents and other serious incidents reported to the Security Department that occur on campus, including non-campus buildings or properties, on public property or within the Security Department’s jurisdiction, or crimes reported to the Security Department by the NYPD.  The logs set forth the incident type, date the incident is reported, date and time of occurrence, and general location of the incident, as well as the disposition of the incident (if this information is known).  An incident is posted into the log by the Security Department within 2 business days of it receiving a report of an incident; provided that the Security Department may exclude reports from a log in certain circumstances as permitted by law.
