S.A.F.E.WALK  is a campus accompaniment service designed as an alternative to walking alone on campus at night. Coordinated by staff at the Department of Public Safety (DPS),  S.A.F.E.WALK escorts are free of charge and available to all members of the University community. During the fall and winter semesters, the service is provided daily from 10pm to 3am. Just call (734) 763-WALK (or 763-9255) to request an escort. An employee from U-M Transportation Services will respond to your campus location and deliver you to your requested location within a one-mile driving radius of central and north campuses. During nonservice hours, alternative service providers will be identified by DPS.
