A free accompaniment service for anyone travelling on or around campus at night

We are currently closed for Reading Week, we are back on Monday, February 24th!

Call us at 780 4 WALKME (780 492 5563) for a walk! Alternatively, you can fill in a form HERE!

This winter season continues to be a harsh one, and as extreme cold warnings continue into late February regular Safewalk closures may continue. If you are unsure if Safewalk will be operating give us a call during our operating hours (7pm-12midnight), we will pick up if we are open. You can also check the Weather Network forecast in advance for "feels like" values of below -30 and/or an extreme cold warning. If you see both of the above on any given day, Safewalk will be closed.

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), if no one picks up the phone, we're probably not on operation yet! If that's the case, please use our FORM to fill in information regarding your walk! 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.
