The safety and security of the Hofstra community and its 244-acre campus is the Department of Public Safety's highest priority. We form a powerful team with students, faculty, and staff, to maintain a campus that is safe and conducive to learning. We encourage the Hofstra community to take advantage of the many services provided by Public Safety to help keep our community safe and to "Step-up" and report any suspicious activity to Public Safety for immediate response.
