Flags being changed at 7 Washington Place

Flags are changed at 7 Washington Place to reflect the new NYU Campus Safety name.

Please note that the Department of Public Safety (DPS) has been renamed as the Department of Campus Safety (DCS) as of August 2021. A new website has been launched in our university Content Management System.

Why are we making this change, and what will be different?

The Department changed its name to more closely align community expectations with the services it is equipped to provide. Other than the name change from Public Safety to Campus Safety, not much will change. The professional, excellent service you’ve come to expect will remain, as will all current services. You will notice that the Department’s buildings, vehicles, uniforms and other physical items will be changed over the coming weeks and months, as well as the naming language on our website and social media.

Please visit our web page to learn more about the name change and for answers to frequently asked questions.
