Investigation of Missing Students

A missing student is defined as any currently registered student of the University at Albany who has not been seen by friends, family members or associates for a reasonable length of time, and whose whereabouts have been questioned and brought to the attention of a member of the University staff or faculty member. The University Police will initiate an investigation when they are notified that a student, who resides in a University operated residence is missing, with no reasonable explanation for his/her absence. Ordinarily, the investigation will be initiated immediately after this notification. In the event the student does not reside in a University residence, the appropriate municipal local police authorities should be notified. In the event of a missing student residing on campus, University Police will notify the parents/family members regarding the student’s whereabouts.
