Services

Public Safety goes beyond keeping you safe. We also offer services to make your time on campus enjoyable and convenient.

Escort 1

Wagner College Public Safety provides Campus Shuttle van service between our parking facilities and our residential buildings from 8:00PM until 4:00AM, 7 days a week, when classes are in session during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Public Safety also provides a walking/golf cart escort service on an “as needed” basis to students and staff who request it. Handicap escorts are also provided. Call 718-390-3148 should you need an escort.

Escorts are provided to all locations within the Public Safety patrol area. The service is to allow safe travel from one location to another with a greater sense of security.

 

Your Wagner College ID card serves as your identification card, and access card and must be carried with you at all times. Your ID card can also be used for:

  • access to the dorms, dining halls and fitness center
  • identification for computer labs, library, and mail
  • admittance to functions and programs on campus
  • identification for purchases on campus and parking permits
  •  meal plans

The following may make your ID card unusable:

  • placing stickers on the card
  • placing it near a strong magnet
  • putting it through the wash
  • bending, cutting, punching a hole or scratching your card in any way

Students must report to House #4 Monday-Friday, between 8:30 AM-4:30PM, to obtain a replacement identification card. There is no charge for the first card, but student will be charged a $30.00 fee for any replacements after the initial card is issued. We no longer issue temporary cards.

For replacement Identification Cards, click here and complete the form. Your new ID card must be picked up at the Public Safety Office during office hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 AM-4:30PM.

All items found on campus that are lost should be turned in to any Public Safety officer or the Public Safety Office. Found or recovered items will be recorded and stored in the Public Safety office “Lost & Found”. Persons who have lost property should report it to the Public Safety office.

Public Safety does not permit the random rummaging through the Lost and Found area for lost items. If an item is reported lost and it is located by the Public Safety, you will be contacted by telephone or email and arrangements will be made to return the property. Found property will be stored until the end of the semester.

Every effort is made to restore lost items to their rightful owners, however, it is the owner’s responsibility to report and/or claim lost articles.
