Information about bat activity on campus
During the late summer and early fall months there is a seasonal increase in bat activity in and around central New York, including the Syracuse University campus. Because a small percentage of bats may carry the rabies virus, it is important to avoid coming into contact with a bat. If you suspect any contact with a bat while on University grounds or if there is a presence of a bat in your campus work area or room, please call Public Safety @ 711 and also report it to area supervisory personnel. Trained University personnel will take appropriate action to capture or remove/relocate the bat. Individuals who have had any contact with a bat or potential unknowing contact (e.g. bat found in the room with a sleeping person or child, etc.) should contact Health Services (443-9005) as soon as possible for an exposure assessment. Syracuse University Health Services is located at 111 Waverly Ave.
