5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel so safe and I get so many friends vibes around campus

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Sometimes when people go to the buildings located outside the main campus area, there are crimes reported (assaults, mugging, etc) and they send bulletins out.But they have cameras, lights, emergency telephones, and security staff all around campus so I think they do a good job of trying to keep everyone safe

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus and see officers present.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Evening student who feels relatively safe at night

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Every campus has crime and QC exception. I am not a victim of crime on campus and I cannot speak for those who have been. What I can say though is that there are many special security measures like cameras etc that help to moderate criminal activity. The police and safety services are responsive and are helpful in protecting us in order to ensure a safe life on campus. Personally I feel safe on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
