About Us

RSP Banquet Picture

The mission of the Residential Safety Program is to ensure the safety of our community through education, providing a walk service to Stony Brook students, and patrolling campus around the clock.


The Residential Safety Program (RSP), a division of Campus Residence was found in 1975. It is a professionally run student-based organization under the direction of Emmanuel Gyamfi, the Program Coordinator of RSP. RSP's staff consists of over 300 dedicated individuals who are studying in the undergraduate, graduate, or doctorate programs of Stony Brook University. This Student based staff is composed of dedicated individuals who have made it their priority to provide safety in our community. By offering a walk escort service around the campus, RSP ensures safety to the students who are afraid to travel alone. To further our mission, RSP is able to maintain a presence throughout Stony Brook University by having field units constantly patrol our campus. In addition, desk monitors are positioned at the main entrance of each residential hall during the night for the  purpose of checking in students and their guests. RSP is designed to serve the ongoing need in our community for security on campus. The fulfillment of this need is one that requires teamwork and dedication.



Our coverage area includes the residence halls in H Quad, G Quad, Roth, Tabler, Kelly, Roosevelt, Nobel Halls, and the West undergraduate apartments. The Chapin and Schomburg graduate apartments are also included.  During finals week, RSP covers the main library as well.
