Attention Students
The Campus Escort Service operates from 5:00 p.m. to midnight, seven days a week, for the safety of anyone walking alone on campus during the evening.

By calling (330) 972-7263, an escort will come to your location and accompany you to any campus building or parking lot. Employed and trained by the University Police, the campus patrol teams are easily identified by conspicuously marked t-shirts or jackets. These teams assist UA Police in patrolling campus parking lots and other areas and by reporting suspicious individuals.

Keep the number handy, in the event you need someone to accompany you around campus!
