Iona College truly cares about its relationship with the New Rochelle community. We have high expectations for our students' behavior. If you have a concern about the behavior of our students or an issue occurring in the community, please email ionacares@iona.edu. Provide as much detail as possible so we can follow up with the appropriate individual(s).

Please note that you can also communicate with the New Rochelle Police Department to report a problem.

Certify Your Safe Rental

Peace Outside Campus is an independent organization that completes a yearly independent safety inspection of off-campus rental properties at no cost to landlords, students or Iona College. Once certified this property will be advertised as being certified through Iona to students and parents, AND it can be advertised on the Peace Outside Campus website at the owner's request.
