Seasonal increase of 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 any physical 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 from a campus phone, or 315-443-2224, 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., a bat found in the room with a sleeping person or child, etc.) should contact Health Services at 443-9005 as soon as possible, following any known or potential contact for an exposure assessment. Syracuse University Health Services is located at 111 Waverly Ave.
