SafeWalks & SafeRides

You don’t have to walk alone.

By traveling together, we significantly reduce our chances of being targeted by criminals on campus.


SafeWalks is a courtesy service provided to University of Illinois students, faculty, and staff. To request a SafeWalks escort, call 217-333-1216. You can also use an emergency phone to contact a dispatcher.

Please give at least 15 minutes notice.

Hours of Operation

9 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., Sunday through Wednesday (calls taken until 2:15 a.m.)
9 p.m. to 3 a.m., Thursday, Friday or Saturday (calls taken until 2:45 a.m.)

SafeWalks is a free service provided by Student Patrol. Visit our employment page for more information on how to join Student Patrol.


The Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District offers limited SafeRides at night by request by calling 217-265-RIDE (7433). Please visit the MTD website for schedules and information about SafeRides.
