Housing and Residence Life provides a complimentary service to accompany residential students anywhere on campus (north to south from Boyd St. to Lloyd Noble Center, west to east from Elm Ave. to S. Jenkins Ave.) from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., Sunday to Friday. This service is staffed by trained resident advisers who are readily available to assist students. To reach SafeWalk, call 405-325-WALK (9255). Residential students also can call from the blue emergency phones. When using a blue phone, simply ask the OUPD dispatcher to connect you with SafeWalk.
SafeWalk staff arrive within 10-15 minutes at any OU campus location and escort persons on foot to their campus destination. Shirts and badges identify SafeWalk staff. SafeWalk staff carry flashlights at all times and umbrellas in wet weather.
If residential students do not wish to walk alone on Saturday nights, they can call the OUPD non-emergency number at (405) 325-1717 or (405) 325-2864.
