Who we are and what we do
The primary responsibility of the Office of Public Safety is to maintain an atmosphere in which Queens College faculty, staff, and students can feel free and secure in pursuing their activities on campus. Several members of our staff have been trained in CPR and first aid. Our campus peace officers and contractual security officers carry two-way radios, and there are 20 blue emergency phones on campus. Our public safety officers staff QC’s main gate on Kissena Boulevard 24 hours a day.
Our office is where faculty, staff, and students register their vehicles and obtain the required decals to park in assigned lots. We also arrange one-day parking passes for visitors; these requests must be made 24 hours in advance. Visitors should enter the campus via the main gate to pick up a parking pass.
