Safewalk

The Safewalk service is provided through Campus Security. 24-7 Safewalk volunteers walk people safely to their destinations on campus. This service is free and available to students, staff and campus visitors for destinations anywhere on campus including McMahon Stadium, Health Sciences, Student Family Housing, the Alberta Children’s Hospital and the University C-Train station. Safewalks are done in male/female pairs. Requesting Safewalk volunteers is easy:

  • Call 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) located through various area on campus, or
  • approach an on-duty Safewalker and request a walk.

*NEW* Send an email to safewalk.request@ucalgary.ca to request a walk. This email address will be monitored Monday to Friday from 6:40 PM until 11:20 PM in the fall and winter terms. 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 email option is not available at the time you contact us, you will receive an automated response message advising you to call Campus Security to request a walk.
