Campus Safety

Campus Safety is located on the ground level of Jonsson Tower, directly inside of the Jonsson Parking Lot entrance. Our officers provide the College with 24-hour patrol of Skidmore’s campus. For emergencies, call (518) 580-5566; for all non-emergencies, call (518) 580-5567. Numerous emergency boxes are located across campus and may be identified by their blue lights. They contain call buttons that automatically dial Campus Safety.

The Department of Campus Safety routinely dispatches Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and local fire and police departments to campus for emergencies.  Several members of the Campus Safety team are certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) who respond and work hand-in-hand with these city, state, and county emergency personnel. Take a moment to program the Campus Safety emergency telephone number (518-580-5566) into your cell phone before an emergency occurs.

Fire alarm systems and fire fighting equipment are in the residence halls and apartments for the occupants' protection. Tampering with or misuse of this equipment is prohibited and is in violation of the law. The Department of Campus Safety provides mandatory fire/safety orientations to groups staying on campus.

Skidmore College strictly prohibits the use of candles, incense, smoking of any kind or any open flames inside the residential halls and apartments. Firecrackers, gasoline, candles, incense, halogen lights/lamps, or other highly combustible items are not permitted in residence halls or apartments. Food preparation is permitted in residence hall kitchenettes. The cooking of food and the use of electrical appliances (i.e. toaster ovens, microwave ovens, heating coils, George Foreman grills, etc.) are prohibited in dorm rooms and apartment bedrooms. Please review more fire safety information online here

 Skidmore ID Card

Your ID card will serve as your identification everywhere on campus that an ID is required, including the library and the sports center. Your ID card will also serve as your meal card, room key, and declining balance card for campus purchases, like laundry or snacks. You may deposit funds into your declining balance account with cash at the machines on the ground floor of Case Center and inside the Dining Hall Atrium, or by credit card online.

At the end of your stay, if your card has a balance of $10 or more, you may get a refund from the Card Office, located on the 1st Floor of Starbuck Center. If your balance is below $10, it cannot be refunded, so we recommend that you spend the money before you leave.

If your card is lost, a new card can be issued at the Summer Registration Desk for a $10 replacement fee. After replacing your ID, the old card will become inactive, ensuring that it cannot be exploited. We cannot reactivate found ID cards once they have been replaced. 

Skidmore ID cards are also accepted at many downtown Saratoga Springs locations! See the list here.

Summer Registration Desk

The Summer Registration Desk - often called Case Desk - is located on the second level of Case College Center, usually referred to simply as Case Center. Our Summer Operations Assistants are on hand seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. to assist you. The staff manages check-in and check-out, prints ID cards, and serves as a liaison between summer guests and other campus departments. We also provide information about the campus, activities, and the local area.



When leaving, you must check out by 11:00 a.m. to avoid additional charges. Please lock your door and call or stop by the Summer Registration Desk to let us know you are leaving. It is important to check-out in person or by phone to avoid additional charges to your stay.
