Campus Safety Escort Service

Safety Escort services are available to accompany U of O students, faculty and staff to their cars, classes, or residence halls. 

There are two options for a Safety Escort:

  • Smart phone users can use the 911 Shield app associated with the Ozarks Alert system to call the Public Safety Officer on duty.
  • One can call the Department of Public Safety at any time, from anywhere on campus to request an escort.

In addition to the Safety Escort service on the 911 Shield app, users can utilize the Friend Watch feature.  This allows users to set a time and activity so contacts know what the user is doing and how long to expect them to be gone.
