SafeWalks is a courtesy service provided to University of Illinois students, faculty, or staff, so that they do not have to walk alone within the campus area. Criminals target individuals who are walking alone or traveling in dark areas. By walking together, we significantly reduce our chances of being targeted by a criminal.
You can request a SafeWalks escort by calling 217-333-1216 or by downloading the mobile app for iOS or Android. You may also request a SafeWalks escort by using an emergency phone to contact a dispatcher.
Please give at least 15 minutes notice.
