Safety Escort Program

As a safe alternative to walking alone at night, the CSO Safety Escort program is a 24-hour complimentary service for members of the UCI community. Safety escorts are provided to the following locations:

  • Main Campus
  • University Research Park
  • All campus housing areas
  • University Town Center Apartments 

CSOs are equipped with radios that allow them to maintain constant communication with the police department.

When requesting a safety escort, you'll need to provide the following information:

  1. Your name
  2. Your location
  3. Your cell phone number
  4. Your destination

A uniformed CSO will then escort you to your destination, informing police dispatch that you've safely reached your destination. 

This program isn't intended to replace existing transportation services such as the campus shuttles, ride sharing apps, or discourage individuals from walking in groups. 

Safety escorts will be primarily conducted by foot.
