The College of Staten Island is now using the new “A” Gate as an entrance and exit to and from campus. When classes are in session, “A” Gate will be open Monday through Thursday from 4:30pm to 8:30pm.

“A” Gate is located across from Building 5N and Parking Lot #4 and the use of the gate is encouraged to alleviate main road traffic on campus during evening hours. Public Safety officers will be present to direct traffic.

The addition of this gate, according to Milton Santiago, Vice President for Finance and Admnistration at CSI, “demonstrates the College’s commitment to improving the quality of life for CSI students, faculty, and staff, as well as for members of the Staten Island community by easing traffic congestion inside and around our campus.”

“I would also like to thank our neighbors at SIDDSO [Staten Island Developmental Disabilities Services Office],” Santiago added, “who agreed to let us use their property, therefore making this new entrance and exit possible.”
