Call 911 immediately if there is an ongoing emergency or if you need to report an imminent threat or life-endangering situation.

NYU is committed to the well-being and safety of our students. Unfortunately, sometimes incidents occur, and NYU encourages prompt reporting. Below are some of the various methods you can use to report such incidents. You can find other reporting options in NYU policies, like the Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy and Complaint Procedures for Students and the Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy.

Common Reporting Resources


Sometimes, students may wish to share information and seek advice from individuals at NYU who will keep the information they are sharing confidential. However, many NYU employees are legally required by law to report certain kinds of incidents that are disclosed to them by students.  Additional information about Confidentiality and Privacy and to find out which resources are — or not — confidential (such as NYU religious centers and chaplains, the Wellness Exchange, and Crisis Response Counselors) can be found on the Resource and Support page.
