A free accompaniment service for anyone travelling on or around campus at night
Now Accepting Volunteer Applications For Winter 2019!
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, Saefwalk will be closed.
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.
