Header-Safe Walk


Safewalk is run by highly motivated volunteers in groups of three. We provide group walk services from Place Riel to some of the most frequented areas around campus by students at night. Our goal is to maximize safety on campus and ensure everyone feels safe accessing the university services, even at night.   

Two volunteers escort the people accessing the services in male-female pairs to ensure everyone feels comfortable. Our volunteers work in close collaboration with Campus Protective Services.  All volunteers are given police background checks and must pass an interview process.


Group walks depart from Place Riel every hour at 9:00 PM, 10:00 PM, and 11:00 PM (Monday to Friday). You can opt for a group walk by simply showing up to Place Riel and approaching one of our friendly volunteers located opposite the USSU Service Desk.  

Outside of these hours and for locations unspecified on the map, Protective Services provides walking escorts. This service is free and available to students, staff, faculty, and campus visitors.

When is Safewalk Available?

What is the U-Safe App?

The U-Safe App was developed to ensure students feel safe on campus. This is the result of joint efforts by USSU and Campus Protective Services. Using the app, you can remotely access features like a friend walk or request a walk from protective services. The App features an SOS service, allowing your chosen contact to see your location in real-time.

Is Campus Safe?

The Safewalk program is not a reaction to crime but a proactive way for students, staff, and faculty to prevent crime.  We are lucky to be on one of the safest campuses in Canada. However, like any area of the City of Saskatoon, the campus community is susceptible to some crime. Safewalk provides security in numbers, and through their patrols, the volunteers also act as an extra set of eyes and ears for Protective Services.
