Night Watch

The purpose of Night Watch is to provide for the safety of anyone walking alone on campus during the evening hours.

Two-person teams, equipped with two-way radios allowing them to be in constant contact with the Police dispatcher, will provide assistance to people requesting Night Watch from the Main Campus, Scott Park Campus and apartment complexes immediately adjacent to campus.  

To request Night Watch, simply call 419-530-3024 or stop at the walk up station inside the Carlson Library.  A team of Night Watch members will be dispatched to your location and assist in getting you to your desired location. 

Plan ahead and be patient as this service is very popular and in high demand on the campuses.  If you no longer need the service after requesting assistance, please call back and cancel your initial request. 

The Night Watch service is available during the fall and spring semesters and operates on the schedule listed below:

Sunday through Saturday: 6:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.

Night Watch services all on campus locations and the apartment complexes immediately adjacent to campus listed below:

  • Gateway Lofts
  • Vivo Apartments
  • Olde Town Apartments
  • Edge Apartments
  • University Hills Apartments
