The Security Office is located at the main entrance of the Mount Sinai Medical Center (1468 Madison Avenue). We have security guard stations at the entrance to all buildings on campus. In addition, we continuously review our security measures to ensure that we are providing a secure environment for all who use our facilities.
All students, faculty, and employees are required to wear Mount Sinai identification within the complex for safety purposes and we enforce this policy. You must display your ID card when you enter any of our buildings and while you are on the premises. As a student at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, your personal security is of paramount importance. For this reason, we will, upon request, provide escorts within the Icahn School of Medicine and to on-campus residences. Call ext. 46068 or 46069 (from on-campus phones), or 212-241-6068 / 212-241-6069, approximately 10 to 15 minutes prior to departure.
To keep the campus secure, we need cooperation from everyone associated with our medical school. We request that students dial "60" on any in-house phone in the event of any emergency or if you observe any suspicious activities. If you need our assistance in a non-emergency situation, please dial ext. 46068 or 46069.
We maintain a committee of the Student Council to address housing and security. The committee meets on a regular basis with Security to discuss matters of concern.
