Campus Security has been a major sticking point for many of the residents of Ramapo College, particularly for those students old enough to drink legally in the alcohol-allowed housing. There are only two areas on campus where alcohol is allowed in the living areas: The Village, provided each resident is of legal drinking age, and Laurel Hall, on the top two floors. Everywhere else on campus, alcohol is prohibited, which leads to problems with students enjoying time outside of their apartments with alcohol, particularly in the communal quads outside The Village. Campus Security also strictly enforces the parking policy, where one must have a sticker on display at all times in the window of the vehicle registered to the student. If not, the vehicle will be ticketed, and repeat offenders will find their car booted.
An area of annoyance for some students is the gate at the entrance of the College. If students are living in Bischoff, Mackin, the Overlook, or the CPAs, they will be required to go through a security booth. If a student does not have an ID to swipe or if somebody in front of the line does not have an ID, he or she has to fill out a form for the security officer in the booth. This takes time and can result in long lines. Public Safety officers are available 24 hours, 7 days a week, and will generally respond to any complaint or concern in a reasonable amount of time.
