Security Department

University Operations

The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is one of our top priorities at Yeshiva University. As part of the YU Office of University Operations, the Department of 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, the Cardozo School of Law at the Brookdale Center in Greenwich Village, the Ferkauf/Katz Campus in the Bronx 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.
