Welcome to the Hartwick College Campus Safety website. Please take the time to explore these pages to learn more about us and safety at Hartwick.

Your personal safety and the security of our campus community are of utmost concern to Hartwick College. Our staff in the Office of Campus Safety are here to serve the community with respect, fairness, and compassion.

The Office of Campus Safety and the Dispatch Desk are located on the 3rd floor of Dewar Union. Campus Safety handles a variety of issues on campus, including crime reports, vehicle accidents, lost and found, first aid, emergency preparation and training, special events, key requests, parking, parking permits, tickets, and appeals. In addition, our department has many safety programs in place, including safety escort program, RAVE campus-wide notification system, and assorted personal safety programs.

Our team of officers patrol the campus on foot and in vehicles. They are in continual communication with our Dispatch Desk, which is staffed by dispatchers 24 hours a day. These dispatchers answer emergency and routine phone calls, monitor security cameras, and provide walk-up customer service. Dispatchers also assist in the management of the student mailroom.

We welcome you to our Hartwick family, and please feel free to visit us in person.

Feel free to email me any time with your inquiries, questions or concerns. You can reach me at
