Night Watch (Escort Service)
Equipped with two-way radios, and in constant contact with the Police Dispatcher, two-person teams of escorts will provide assistance to people requesting an escort from one UT building to another, late at night.
The purpose of the Night Watch (Escort Service) is to provide for the safety of anyone walking alone on campus during the evenings.
Although the campus is well lit, those traveling the campus on foot should choose well-used routes. People who feel uncomfortable walking alone on campus during evening hours can utilize the Escort Service that operates from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., Sunday to Thursday, and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, when school is in session.
To request an escort, students should call 530.3024. (On-campus 3024.) An escort will be sent to their location and accompany them to any parking lot or campus building. The escorts are cleared through the University Police Department prior to assuming their duties.
