Foot Patrol

About Us

Foot Patrol is a safe walk program offered to anyone in the university community.  We offer a safe and inclusive environment for you to use while you walk at night. Our patrollers will walk within a 45-minute radius of campus and will also accompany you on the bus within a 30-minute radius.  Along with that, after riding the bus we will walk 15-minutes with you. You can see us around campus at night with our bright yellow vests however if you would like a more casual experience, just ask for a casual walk!  Our volunteers will remove the vest so that we don’t stand out as much if this makes you feel more comfortable. Have a night class every week? Book a pre-registered walk and we will be waiting to pick you up when your class is finished, no need to call each week!
