The Department of Public Safety operates a Safe Escort Service on campus for any member of the university community who requires an escort from dusk until dawn. During busy periods, a caller may experience a delay in the arrival of the escort.

Safe Escort Regulations

  1. To request an escort, dial 570.577.3333 (on campus, dial 73333).
  2. The Safe Escort Program operates seven days a week, from dusk to dawn.
  3. No escorts will be given from one off campus location to another off campus location.
  4. Public Safety reserves the right to refuse an escort due to disorderly behavior, visible intoxication, or to anyone who does not meet the requirements for requesting an escort.

Remember, the Safe Escort program is designed to provide a safe escort to the members of the campus community who does not feel comfortable walking alone at night. It is not designed to be a "taxi service" for groups who do not wish to walk from one location to another due to cold or adverse weather conditions.

Thank you for your cooperation.
