4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is pretty safe and security is always helpful.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe in campus and near it during the time I'm there but in concerns of health I'm unaware. I travel to campus so I don't know the quality of service within the health department in college but I do know they seem welcoming.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: will always feel safe on campus

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is kind of scary at night because even though it is lit, there really aren't many people walking around.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel as though I don't see enough school security on campus and that people walking onto campus are not checked or identified at all. That worries me very much because ANYONE can walk onto campus. I'm paranoid about a gunman coming in and shooting up the school. I also think officers should be stationed more obviously around the school when it gets dark, especially in winter.

In terms of health and safety, QC provides students with free or low-cost resources, consultations, referrals, and educational venues. Though the area, specifically Kissena Boulevard (the main street in which QC is located), is not considered a safe area to walk alone (particularly at night), campus itself provides a safe haven for students. A limited number of entrances are open for use at nights and on weekends. However, some students wish that there were more officers guarding the front gates of campus.

The health office, located on the third floor of Frese Hall, is not very large, but the staff is friendly and helpful to the students. All CUNY students taking six or more credits can apply for the GHI/CUNY Student Health Insurance, available at the beginning of each semester. Representatives of AmeriGroup and Medicaid visit Queens College and help students choose plans they can afford. During the Swine Flu scare, QC placed hand sanitizers throughout the campus for students to use on their way to classes.
