Safe Escort Programs

Safe escort programs, available free of charge to all students, faculty, and staff, provide a walking companion or a safe ride on campus.

Walking Escorts

A personal escort to your car or residence hall can be requested by calling University Police (878-6333) or extension 6333 from a campus or blue-light phone.

Recognizing Your Escort

University police officers wear gray uniforms with name badges; University Police Student Assistants (UPSA) wear bright red jackets, red shirts, and ID tags. Each UPSA carries a police radio to stay in touch with the university police dispatch center.

Escort Van Routes (PDF)

MGC Direct is a free express shuttle service connecting students, faculty, and staff who park in outlying lots along Rockwell Road and Letchworth Street to the center of campus.

The MGC Direct picks up riders in Lots M and G and takes them directly to Lot C—also known as the Cleveland Hall circle—from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. when classes are in session.

The overnight escort shuttle operates from 4:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. seven days a week when classes are in session and provides late-night service to all parking lots and most buildings. To catch this free evening shuttle, wait at a blue-light phone along the route.
