Safety Escort Services

Walking Escort Service

Walking escorts will be provided by individuals wearing a bright orange vest/jacket to students, faculty, and staff, to and from, on and near off campus locations. When they are not providing an escort, they will be strategically located along Euclid Avenue, as well as Walnut Park and Marshall Street. The Walking Escort program operates daily from 10:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. throughout the academic year.

Walking escorts can be requested by calling 315.443.2224.

Please note that callers may be directed to the shuttle service depending on the availability and wait times for the walking escorts.

Shuttle Escort Service

Effective July 1, Parking and Transportation Services staff and drivers will assume responsibility and oversight of the University’s Safety Escort Shuttle Services program. The change is in response to recommendations provided to the University by Loretta Lynch in her comprehensive review of the Department of Public Safety (DPS), completed earlier this year.
