Safety Escorts

To further enhance your safety on campus, the University Police Department offers a free safety escort service to all students, faculty and staff. Safety escorts are often utilized for an extra sense of security, like when it is dark outside or when walking to and from your vehicle.


  • A University Police officer or campus safety officer will meet you at a designated location to travel with you to your destination.
  • This service is available anywhere on the West Virginia University campus.
  • To request a safety escort, please call our 24/7 communications center at 304-293-3136.
  • This service is based on availability and wait times may vary.
  • We encourage you to arrange these services 20 to 30 minutes in advance.
