With shorter hours of daylight now, this is a good time to begin using the Campus Escort Service (CES), a student organization that serves the entire University community. The group’s main goal is to offer an alternative to walking alone after dark.
To ensure absolute safety, each member of the Campus Escort Service must pass a police security background check, an interview and a reference check. Escorts then attend a comprehensive “on-the-job” training session. They must wear a photo identification badge at all times.
To use this service, dial 372-8360 and provide the dispatcher with your:
- Name and phone number
- Current location
Description of your appearance for identification
- Desired destination and pick-up time
The dispatcher will then give you an estimated time of arrival for your escort.
We also provide walking escorts (except in cases of inclement weather) from one on-campus location to another on-campus location.
Campus Escort Service hours
8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 7 days a week.
