The Ithaca College Student Handbook is now online and may be accessed at www.ithaca.edu/handbook.

There is a lot of valuable information in the handbook, including the student conduct code, policies, and residential life information, with which you should become familiar.

The College is also required by law to provide information related to all federal and New York State laws that are critical for you to know. The Public Safety section of the Student Handbook serves as the College’s annual security report as required by federal law.

At the links below, you will find relevant information on personal safety and crime prevention strategies, the law enforcement authority of campus security, policies and procedures for reporting crimes that may occur on campus, sexual assault and hate crime laws, and crime statistics for the most recent three-year period. To maximize your personal safety and the security of your personal belongings, please take time to read the following sections carefully.

Daily Crime Log
The Office of Public Safety maintains a daily log listing all criminal offenses required to be reported under federal law. The log lists the date, time reported, time occurred, general location, and disposition of the offense, if this information is known at the time the log is created. Certain information may temporarily be withheld to protect a victim or maintain the integrity of an in-progress criminal investigation. The daily crime log is available for public inspection during normal business hours at the Office of Public Safety or anytime online.

Public Safety Reports
The Office of Media Relations maintains a listing of Public Safety Reports. These listings provide information on all crimes reported to the Office of Public Safety as well as on other incidents to which Public Safety has responded. Such incidents can include, but are not limited to, bias related incidents, emergency medical and fire responses, referrals for alleged violations of the Student Conduct Code, assistance provided to outside law enforcement agencies, damage to campus property, and motor vehicle accidents. The Public Safety Reports are updated on a weekly basis during the academic year and are available online.
