At St. John Fisher College, we strive for a safe campus along with security in our academic buildings and residence halls. We can only do this with the help and cooperation of all faculty, staff and students.
Below are actions that should be practiced daily to ensure everyone's safety:
- Carry your Fisher ID with you at all times.
- Do not prop exterior doors; this allows for easy access to unwanted strangers.
- Do not hold the door for strangers. Ask them to swipe in or call the person that they are visiting to come and let them in.
- If you see suspicious activity, notify security immediately.
All residence halls at the College are locked 24 hours a day. Residents can access their assigned residence hall with their swipe card. All other facilities will be locked whenever possible, depending on use and scheduling. Learn more about the College's Residence Halls.
No one may place a lock on a college facility, interior or exterior, or transfer their keys to another person without the express permission of the Director of Campus Safety and Security or his designee.

Security Officers conduct periodic foot, bicycle, and vehicle patrols of all campus buildings, grounds, and parking areas.
All campus facilities are locked and unlocked daily according to established schedules available at the Safety & Security Office.
The Residence Halls are locked 24 hours a day and are patrolled and monitored by Security Officers and/or Resident Assistants. All resident students are encouraged to keep their room doors and bathroom doors locked when out or asleep. For more information, refer to Residence Hall Fire & Safety page.
Any employee who needs to enter a locked campus building or office for work duties before or after lock-up who does not have a key or ID must request access from Safety and Security . Employees must be prepared to identify themselves to a security officer. Access to high security areas will require prior written permission from the director of the appropriate department.
Students requesting access to a building after it is locked must be on a pre-approved access list at Safety and Security and must show a current SJFC ID card. A faculty or staff member responsible for that area must forward updated lists to security at the beginning of each semester.
Lost Keys and IDs
If you have lost your ID card, you must go to the Safety and Security Department for a new card. There is a $10.00 charge for new ID cards. If you have lost any College key, except for a residence hall key, you must report it to the Safety and Security Department. If you have lost a residence hall key, you must see your Residence Director.
