Promoting campus safety and awareness

Twenty four hours a day and seven days a week, Safewalk volunteers walk people safely to their destination on campus. This service is free and available to students, staff and campus visitors, thanks to a collaboration between Campus Security and the Students' Union.


Safewalks are done in male/female pairs. The volunteers walk anywhere on campus (including McMahon Stadium, Health Sciences, Student Family Housing, the Alberta Children's Hospital and the University LRT station).

Requesting Safewalk volunteers to walk with you is easy!

  • Call Campus Security @ 403-220-5333 (24 hours a day/seven days a week, 365 days a year)
  • Use the Help Phones (they are not just for emergencies)
  • Approach an on-duty Safewalk Volunteer and request a walk

*NEW* Send an e-mail to to request a walk via e-mail.  This e-mail address will be monitored Monday -Friday from 6:40PM until 11:20PM while the fall and winter lectures are in session.  You will receive a prompt response from a volunteer with a confirmation and response time.  Please wait for the confirmation before leaving your workstation.  If the e-mail option is not available at the time you contact us, you will receive an automated e-mail response message advising you to call Campus Security @ 403-220-5333 to request a walk.
