Missing Student Contact and Notification Procedures

All students residing in on-campus residence halls have the option of identifying a confidential contact person(s) whom the College will notify if the student is determined to be missing by the Office of Campus Safety or the local law enforcement agency. Only authorized campus personnel and law enforcement officials will have access to this information and the information will be disclosed only in a missing person investigation.

A student residing in an on-campus residence hall who is believed to be missing should be reported to the Campus Safety Office at (914) 654-5204, the Office of the Dean of Students at (914) 654-5862, or to a Resident Assitant or Residence Director. If a student is reported missing to a College representative other than the Campus Safety Office, such missing student report will be referred immediately to the Campus Safety Office.

When a student residing in an on-campus residence hall is determined to have been missing for 24 hours, the College will, within 24 hours:

  • Notify the contact person(s) designated by the student;
  • Notify the student's custodial parent or guardian if the student is under 18 years of age and is not emancipated; and
  • Contact the local law enforcement agency.

Students may designate a contact person(s) to be notified in a missing person investigation when they apply for housing or when they check in to their residence hall.
