Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

With the installation of new turnstiles and reinforcement of security measures around Hunter, students on campus feel safer, and the College's rep as an unsafe school has gradually been eliminated. Students generally feel safe on campus. There is always a crowd around Hunter, and when there isn't there are security guards at stations around campus to add to the aura of safety and comfort. This, however, does not mean that a wallet left unattended will not get stolen, or that wandering in the library's basement or empty floors at night is a good idea. Like any campus, a measure of common sense and risk assessment is necessary for students to remain safe, so don't leave things lying around without asking someone to watch over it, or go in to lonely parts of the library without a friend.

Health Services is located on the fourth floor of the North Building and offers physical examinations, vaccinations, emergency on-campus care, as well as health information regarding issues like sexual health, cancer, eating disorders, stress management, and free condoms.
