Led by a team of highly experienced security professionals and staffed by trained security practitioners, NYUAD Public Safety operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is committed to ensuring the safety of the University's students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
The NYUAD Public Safety team maintains a visible presence with uniformed security guards stationed throughout all campus locations. The department utilizes state-of-the-art technology at all campus locations to assist in achieving its goal of maintaining a safe and secure campus environment at all times.
In case of certain emergencies, the department has a mass notification system designed to alert the NYUAD community in a matter of minutes by text, email, and voice messages. To ensure the hands-on involvement of Public Safety leadership, senior members of the team reside on or near campus, making them immediately available to respond to incidents at all hours.
The Public Safety team also maintains strong and enduring partnerships with Abu Dhabi law enforcement agencies, and with local embassies and consulates.
While in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is considered one of the safest large cities in the world. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to take certain precautions. While violent crimes and crimes against property are rare, they do occur.
