The Office of Campus Safety is centrally located on campus, next to the U.S. Post Office.

The Office of Campus Safety maintains a safe, secure and learning-friendly environment for students, faculty and staff. We protect college property, register vehicles, direct and control traffic and parking, investigate motor vehicle complaints, conduct investigations, provide after-dark escort services between parking lots and other campus locations and residence halls, and respond to emergency situations and complaints. Campus Safety is not a law-enforcement agency. While our officers enforce college policy, they do not make arrests or issue court appearance tickets. If students require medical or law-enforcement assistance, Campus Safety officers will assess the situation and make appropriate referrals. Neither the Office of Campus Safety nor Residence Life staff will transport students to the hospital.


  • All Campus Safety officers are certified as New York State security guards.
  • All officers are trained/certified in basic first aid, blood-borne pathogens, emergency oxygen, CPR, automated external defibrillator (AED) and incident command; training is conducted continuously throughout the year in order to better serve the Paul Smith’s College community.
