Smart and Safe at State
Safe Walk Service
The Safe Walk Service is designed to provide walking
accompaniment to Penn State students and employees
who may feel unsafe walking alone on campus at night. The
Safe Walk Program operates out of Auxiliary Police, which
is a uniformed student division within University Police. The
students carry police radios and walk Penn State students and
employees from one on-campus location to another, and to
within reasonable walking distance off-campus. Safe Walks
are available from dusk to dawn 365 days/year. A campus
night map is available at geog.psu.edu/print-campus-maps.
