University Police reminds all members of the campus community to be aware of their surroundings at all times. It is always a good idea to have a companion with you, especially when commuting in the evenings and early mornings.



University Police’s safe escort program provides a walking companion or a ride on campus free of charge to all students, faculty, and staff. A personal escort to your car or residence hall can be requested by calling University Police at ext. 6333 (878-6333) from a campus or blue-light phone.
