The safety and comfort of everyone on campus is important – that’s why there’s Safewalk.

Safewalk is a free service from the AMS that is looking out for your safety on campus, and operates most nights during the school year with its walking service. Safewalk will send a co-ed pair of walkers to any point on campus and will walk anyone to any point on campus they need to go.

Safewalk is a visible safety presence on campus and promotes safety by giving out whistles, safety cards, and public information on being safe on campus. Safewalk works closely with campus security and the RCMP to keep your safety a number one priority. Look for Safewalkers on campus with our red jackets, flashlights, and radios. We’re here for you, don’t walk alone!
