A free accompaniment service for anyone travelling on or around campus at night
NOTE: As of February 25, 2014, Safewalk teams can walk clients who have been drinking alcohol, not but excessively so. This new service will run Tuesdays through Fridays.
Safewalk provides a safe and reliable alternative to walking alone at night around the campus community and beyond. Safewalk was created not as a reaction to crime, but as a proactive step to build the safest possible campus community. We serve campus by walking clients and patrolling as a measure of crime deterrence, while upholding a strict policy of non-intervention.
Safewalk is free of charge and is available to any member of the surrounding community—undergrads, graduate students, staff, faculty, and members of the public. Whether you don't like to walk alone after dark, or would just like some company on your trip, give us a call!
To use Safewalk, call 780 4 WALKME (780 492 5563). Our dispatchers will send a two-person team to meet you and walk you anywhere within our boundaries.
You can also approach any patrolling team on campus or come down to our office in the Lower Level of SUB and talk to the dispatcher in person.
