The University of Delaware Department of Public Safety is dedicated to the safety and security of the community it serves. Public Safety, therefore, provides escort service on campus as follows:
The University of Delaware Department of Public Safety provides a free walking escort service for students, staff and faculty to or from any University property or contiguous street, and specific areas off campus that immediately border the Hen after Ten bus route (see MAP) . Public Safety Aides (PSA's) utilize the University's bus service as the primary mode of transportation for UD's escort service. In other circumstances, depending on the length of trip, PSA's will walk individuals to their final destination. Hen after Ten bus stops are regularly reviewed for safety and lighting and are patrolled by University Police Officers. Information regarding the University's late night bus service, Hen after Ten, can be found at: http://www.udel.edu/transportation/ud_route/hen.html.
The escort service is designed to enhance your safety and peace of mind if you must walk after dark. This service is available during the hours of darkness every night of the week.
To arrange for an escort please call 831-6666 or use one of the over 200 blue light emergency phones located throughout campus. When calling, please be prepared to give the following information: your name, your exact location, and your destination.
Public Safety carefully screens and selects their Public Safety Aides who provide the escorts. Escort PSA's are outfitted with blue Public Safety shirts or jackets, a traffic vest, and two-way radios.
If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please email Public Safety.
