Dear CCNY Community, The CCNY Campus is open today.  Our facilities crew has been working all night to prepare the campus. For those of you who are scheduled to come in, please take all precautions and be careful as you commute. Remember that icy conditions require that you be careful when and where you walk, so wear appropriate footwear and watch your step. If weather conditions do prevent you from making it to campus, please discuss this with your supervisor/instructor. Stay Safe, Ken

Dear Campus Community, The rise in COVID cases on campus has had an impact on our Public Safety and Facilities staff and we are currently operating under significant shortages.  Because of this situation, access to buildings where the number of occupants are low, will be by a phone request to public safety.  We have identified the following buildings where access will be by request only:  Compton Goethals, Spitzer and Aaron Davis Hall.  If you need access to one of these buildings, please call public safety after your arrival at 212-650-7777.  After your call, a public safety… Read More »

Dear CCNY/CSOM Faculty and Staff Many of you will have visitors or other persons of interest that need to come to our campus.  The Cleared4 system is broken into different databases.  The primary database is for Tax Levy employees and a majority of the RF employees.  This database was prepopulated with data from CUNY First.  We have another database that is used for visitors, contractors, and other people who come to campus (visiting professors, emeritus professors, some postdocs, etc) that are not in our standard database.  In order for these people to be able to access campus… Read More »

Dear Campus Community, It became obviously clear to me that most of you do not know your personal link to Cleared4.  This is understandable because it was sent back in September and, because we had other means of accessing campus, there was no need to use it unless you were unvaccinated and had to be tested on a weekly basis.  For those of you who are vaccinated and now must go through random testing and use the Cleared4 pass for accessing campus, I have forced the Cleared4 system to send you all your personal links – if you already know yours, please excuse the reminder.  This… Read More »

Dear Campus Community As of Monday, 12/6/21, we will be discontinuing the use of the V-22 sticker and the Excelsior Pass for campus access (please see my memo on Random COVID Testing).  This means you will need to know how to access your Cleared4 pass. It is best that you practice this before you come to campus.  Please remember that each person has a "personal" link to Cleared4.  This is why we cannot send you generic instructions on how to access your pass.  If you do not know your link or cannot locate it, please send an email to and we will… Read More »

*Please take a moment to read the corresponding notice from VP, Ken Ihrer.  Dear CCNY Community, As communicated to you through a memo by EVC Batista on Wednesday, November 17th, CUNY has started random testing of vaccinated faculty, staff and students who come to campus.  If you are selected for random testing, you will have seven days to complete your testing at one of the CUNY testing centers, including the CCNY center in the NAC building.  The test does not require an appointment. If you receive a negative test… Read More »
