University Security

University Security acts as the security presence on campus, with the distinctive “hi-vis” green and gray uniform seen around campus, in libraries, residence halls, on bike patrol and proving the 4-WALK safe walk service. Security Monitors are given training in First Aid, CPR, and use of an AED. Security Monitors are equipped with a First Aid Kit and a portable police radio in the event of an emergency.

The safe walk service provides free walking and biking security escorts to and from campus locations and nearby adjacent neighborhoods for all students, staff, faculty and visitors.

To request a safe walk from a trained student security monitor, please call 612-624-WALK (9255), or 4-WALK from any campus phone, shortly before your desired departure time. Your safety is our first priority!
