Navigating the Campuses

New York Campus-specific Information

The following information is specific to the New York campus.

Bookstore

The Craig Claiborne Bookstore is located on the first floor of Roth Hall and is open to students, faculty, staff, and visitors on days when classes are in session. You’ll find a list of more than 1,000 titles, many of which are difficult to find elsewhere. Additionally, you will find many familiar names in professional cooking and baking, including J. A. Henckel, Forschner, Ateco, and others.

The bookstore also sells a selection of school supplies, replacement uniforms, health and beauty aids, and a wide range of gift items from sweatshirts and T-shirts to glassware and key chains. The bookstore also features gourmet foods such as fine chocolates, coffee, tea, oils, and vinegars, as well as products by graduates and local merchants. Other services offered are personalized graduation announcements, graduation rings, and elegant diploma frames. Most items in stock are available by mail and web order. The bookstore’s website may be accessed via www.ciachef.bncollege.com. Please inquire about special-order services for books, knives, and tools.

Copy Center

Students can request printed versions of course-related material found on Moodle such as course guides, PowerPoint presentations, and recipes. The cost per printed black-and-white copy is 5 cents per printed side and color is 10 cents per printed side. Print requests should be sent via e-mail to copycenter@culinary.edu. Due to the volume of requests, orders may take a day to a few days to complete. Only Culinary Cash is accepted as payment.

Club leaders and bachelor’s degree students making copies for their dining event should always have faculty approval and know their club’s or event’s account number to charge before bringing any jobs to the Copy Center. Please provide originals that are ready to copy or print and allow at least 24 hours for us to work on your job. For your convenience, you can e-mail your jobs to copycenter@culinary.edu.

Mail

The mail room supports all faculty, staff, and students with CIA incoming and business-related outgoing mail and packages. The mail room is not affiliated with the U.S. Postal Service and is not a public mail center. Large and/or international packages should be shipped from the Hyde Park Post Office or The Shipping Place, both located north of the college on Route 9. You may also visit the websites of UPS, FedEx, or USPS for shipping options. For your convenience, stamps may be purchased at the Barnes & Noble (Craig Claiborne) Bookstore located on the New York campus. Stamps are not sold from the CIA mail room.

Every New York student will be issued a campus mailbox with campus box number (CBN) and key. When leaving the college for reasons such as externship, graduation, or withdrawal, return your mailbox key to avoid a $25 charge.

As a CIA student, it is your responsibility to:

  • Memorize your campus box number (CBN)
  • Use your CBN on all correspondance
  • Use your legal name, as recorded at the Registrar’s Office, on all correspondance—incoming and outgoing
  • Have your key with you to pick up mail
  • Check your mailbox on a regular basis

The mail room cannot check boxes or give mail over the counter. All mail and packages will be ready for pickup each day by 5 p.m. If you receive a package, you will be notified through your CIA e-mail and receive a reminder e-mail daily until the package is collected. A valid photo ID is required to pick up your package.

To help speed up mail delivery, please communicate your correct address to all correspondents. Failure to do so will delay your mail.

All letters and packages should be addressed using the format below. This includes outgoing and incoming parcels and letters as well as online purchases.

Please remember that a medical permit is required for students to ride the elevator in Roth Hall. Students can apply for a medical permit to ride the elevator at Student Health Services. Certain restrictions may apply. An exception is made for students delivering heavy materials required for a class that could only be transported via the elevator.

Weather

Due to the large number of students living on campus, classes will rarely be canceled as a result of bad weather. If you miss classes, you will be marked absent for the class sessions for which you are not present. If you live off campus, use your own judgment before attempting to drive. Our Inclement Weather Policy provides for possible delays in AM classes, early closing, or complete closing for the day. Delayed openings will be announced by 5:30 a.m. or earlier. If weather is such that the breakfast portion of the Non-Commercial Foodservice and High-Volume Production class needs to be delayed or canceled, a decision will be made by midnight. Any closings or delays will be posted on our home page at www.ciachef.edu, and are available via our weather hotline (845-905-4444) and on the following radio stations:

Dutchess/Ulster Counties
WPDH—101.5, 106.1 FM
WRRV—92.7, 96.9 FM
MIX 97—97.7 FM
THE WOLF—94.3 or 97.3 FM

In addition, you’ll be notified through our Mass Notification System on campus. All students are urged to register for this free service. An invitation to join will be sent to your CIA student e-mail account.

Wildlife

Animals indigenous to the Hudson Valley may unexpectedly appear on campus grounds and outside residence halls, as our facilities are surrounded by their natural habitat.

Various birds, snakes, rodents (including squirrels and groundhogs), and other animals are active on and around the campus grounds. Students should not feed, touch, harass, or approach any wild animal. Residence hall doors should be kept closed to prevent their entry into the facility. Please do not disturb any animals and immediately notify Campus Safety if any animal appears ill or poses any type of threat.

Pond

Known to students as Lake Velouté, the pond located in front of Pick/Herndon Hall is for the enjoyment of all. Fishing is limited to “catch and release,” and can only be done on the shores. No boats, rafts, or flotation devices are permitted. Swimming is not allowed. Pollution or littering of Lake Velouté is strictly prohibited. Ice skating (or walking) on ice is not permitted. Year-round (indoor) ice skating is available at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, NY. Call 845-454-5800 for information.

Railroad Tracks and Cliffs

Due to the obvious danger they present, the cliffs along the edge of the CIA’s property are off limits. These cliffs are owned by CSX, and if you are found in these areas you will be considered trespassing. In addition, the railroad tracks and adjacent areas below, which run along the banks of the Hudson River, are also CSX property and are off limits at all times. Please cooperate and be sure you and your visitors stay clear of these areas.

Wooded Property

The CIA’s wooded property located north of and adjacent to the main campus is open only during daylight hours. All CIA policies are in effect in this area, including but not limited to: no open campfires, no alcohol consumption, no illegal substances, no littering, no hunting, and no off-road motorized vehicles. No person shall injure, destroy, deface, remove, fill in, tamper with, or cut any tree or other plant life.

Environmental Protection

New York State enforces strict laws to protect our environment. Properties along the Hudson River, including The Culinary Institute of America, are under special scrutiny to ensure that the fragile ecosystem of the estuary is not compromised. Fines of up to $10,000 may be imposed by the Department of Environmental Conservation for various violations (e.g., oil/grease spills, recycling infractions, etc.). It is extremely important that you obey the college’s policies and procedures relating to environmental issues to avoid possible liability in an incident.

California Campus—Specific Information

The following information is specific to the California campus.

Bookstore

Open daily from 10:30 a.m.–6 p.m., Greystone’s campus store—the Spice Islands Campus Store and Marketplace—carries a vast assortment of high-quality merchandise. You’ll find cookbooks, culinary magazines, cookware and cutlery, equipment, chef’s pants and jackets, logo clothing, gift items, and an array of international ingredients.

Currently enrolled degree and certificate program students receive 25% off most items in the store. CIA alumni receive 20% off. Call 707-967-2309 or toll free at 1-888-424-2433.

Mail

Students living at Vineyard Lodge I and II should have their mail sent to them at 830 Pratt Avenue, St. Helena, CA 94574. Students living at the Guest House should have their mail delivered to 2555 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574.

Packages for students in all residence halls should be sent in care of the student to The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, 2555 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574. Both mail and packages should be clearly marked “student” to avoid delivery errors. Packages can be retrieved from the package room, located at the Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies on the first floor. The package room is open Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. and 2–4:30 p.m.

The CIA will not forward mail to residents who have left on-campus housing. Please make arrangements for forwarding mail to your new address at least three weeks prior to departure.

Weather

Due to the climate in St. Helena, classes will rarely be canceled as a result of bad weather. If you miss classes, you will be marked absent for the class sessions for which you are not present. If you live off campus, use your own judgment before attempting to drive. Our Inclement Weather Policy provides for possible delays in AM classes, early closing, or complete closing for the day. Delayed openings will be announced by 5:30 a.m. or earlier. If weather is such that the breakfast portion of the High-Volume Production Cookery class needs to be delayed or canceled, a decision will be made by midnight. Any closings or delays will be posted on our home page at www.ciachef.edu.

In addition, you’ll be notified through our Mass Notification System on campus. All students are urged to register for this free service. An invitation to join will be sent to your CIA student e-mail account.

Wildlife

Animals indigenous to the Napa Valley may unexpectedly appear on campus grounds and outside residence halls, as our facilities are adjacent to their natural habitat.

Adult and juvenile rattlesnakes like to warm themselves after a long winter in the sunshine of the herb garden and other terraced steps during late spring/early summer. Be sure to keep residence hall doors closed to prevent their entry into the facility. Please do not disturb any animals and notify the Office of Safety and Security immediately so that they can safely remove these visitors from the property.

Swallows return to Greystone each spring to build their nests and raise their young in the rafters and eaves of our historic buildings. These special birds and their nests are protected by law, and we are prohibited from removing them until the birds leave each summer. Please take care when entering and exiting the building through the main entrance during this time of year.

Earthquakes

The CIA at Greystone is located in a part of the world that is prone to earthquakes. We advise all students to adhere to the following procedures in the event of a large earthquake:

  • Do not run. You can’t outrun an earthquake. You will only fall down and risk injuring yourself.
  • Don’t try to get in a doorway. That’s only appropriate in un-reinforced adobe buildings with wood door frames.
  • If you are in bed, stay there and ride it out. Do not hang heavy items on the wall over the bed, as they can fall on you. Do not move around until you have put shoes on; otherwise, you will cut your feet on broken glass. Most earthquake injuries are to the feet.
  • If you are not in your room, getting under a table or something else solid is good, but you can also just hold onto something solid and ride it out. You probably will not be able to stand without support. The most serious hazard will be caused by falling furniture and objects.
  • If you are in a kitchen in front of a hot pan containing hot food or liquid, you should move away. The pan may not stay on the stove.
  • Be very careful moving around after the earthquake is over. Your surroundings will likely be changed and unstable. In addition, there will be numerous aftershocks, though not as large as the original earthquake.
  • Check on your neighbors and find out if anyone is injured. Report to the assistant director of student affairs, the residence life director, or security. Emergency responders will likely be overwhelmed, so you will have to handle most situations on your own for a while.
  • Gather in your normal evacuation area—the east side of the parking lot at Vineyard Lodge if you’re there, or the south parking lot next to the Williams Center when you’re on the Greystone main campus.

Please note that in the event of an earthquake, natural gas and electricity will be shut off automatically.
