Safety Escort Service

To and from all parking areas & on campus locations.

Areas of service

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to take advantage of the escort service provided from dusk to dawn by the SDSU Police Department's Community Service Officers (CSO) and Police Officers. The CSO service is a safety walking escort to all parking lots, structures and on campus locations. This service is provided seven days a week from 5:00p.m. to 11:00p.m. when classes are in session during the Fall and Spring semester. To request an escort please call 619-594-6659.

If you require an escort after 11:00p.m. or when classes are not in session please call 619-594-6659 and your call will be forwarded to the Police Department's Communication Center. Please understand the police dispatcher is handling other (emergency/non-emergency) calls as well as radio traffic from police officers patrolling the campus. If you are put on hold, please wait patiently for the dispatcher to respond. Additionally, if there are emergency calls coming in, the escort will have to wait until the officers are finished responding to those calls. If you are told the officers are on other calls and there will be a wait, please stay in a place that you feel safe until the officer can come to you.

If at any time you wish to cancel your escort request, please call the escort line to advise the dispatcher so they can remove you from the queue.

Please view “Personal Safety While Walking” tips, for more information.
