Campus Safety

Every member of the SUNY Delhi community deserves to feel safe, comfortable, and welcome on campus. Our safety policies and procedures have been developed to ensure that students can learn, faculty can teach, and staff can work in a safe environment.

On Campus

  • University Police Department members are New York State University Police Officers with full police powers.
  • Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Officers provide foot, vehicle, and bike patrols to all areas of campus.
  • Emergency blue light phones are located throughout campus to immediately contact University Police.
  • UPD officers provide educational crime awareness programs for students.

In the Residence Halls

  • The main entrance to every residence hall is locked at all times. Students must use an ID card for access.
  • Every floor has its own Resident Assistant. That’s one RA for every 30 students.

Off Campus

The Village of Delhi is a safe, close-knit community with a population of just over 5,000 and a crime rate substantially below the national average.

Emergency Communication & Planning

In the event of an emergency, SUNY Delhi has several systems in place to quickly notify as much of the college community as possible:

  • Rave Mobile Alert messaging to anyone who has registered
  • Broadcast email messages to all college email addresses
  • Broadcast message to registered parent email addresses
  • Loudspeakers on Evenden Tower
  • Local and regional media: television, radio and newspapers
  • For security reasons, the college’s Emergency Response Plan is not posted online.

Reporting an Emergency

For all campus emergencies (fire, medical, police) call University Police:

  • 4700 from any campus phone
  • 607-746-4700 from any cell phone
  • You may also dial Delaware County 911

Planning Ahead

Emergencies, disasters, or accidents — natural and man-made — can happen at any time and without warning. SUNY Delhi students and employees should familiarize themselves with college buildings and the following guidelines:

  • Know at least two building exits other than the elevators
  • Know the location of building fire alarm systems
  • Know emergency phone numbers and keep them posted
  • Participate in all fire drills and take them seriously
  • Evacuate at the first sign of smoke, fire alarm, or an evacuation notice
  • Assist with the evacuation of disabled individuals

BroncoCHECK: Speak Up

A BroncoCHECK is an intentional decision to intervene in a situation that has the potential to be risky, dangerous, unhealthy, or an emergency. The BroncoCHECK program is designed to:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of problematic behaviors and unjust behaviors;
  • Instill a sense of responsibility for helping to solve problems and support others;
  • Develop skills related to intervening in risky, dangerous, or unjust situations;
  • Empower people to act individually and collectively 

Drugs & Alcohol

In short: they’re not allowed.

The SUNY Delhi Code of Conduct prohibits the possession, use and sale or transfer of illegal drugs or controlled substances on or off college property. Students caught selling or in possession of misdemeanor or felony amounts of drugs, including marijuana, will face severe disciplinary sanctions, which would likely include suspension or expulsion from the institution.

SUNY Delhi prohibits the possession, consumption, sale or transfer of alcoholic beverages by all students, regardless of age, or visitors on college or College Association property.
