Uniformed Allied Universal Public Safety Officers provide free walking escorts to everyone, regardless of affiliation, to any destination within our patrol zone. Officers are dispatched by radio and will accompany you to your destination, including from one campus location to another, to your parked vehicle, to a Penn Transit Stop or to an on-campus SEPTA regional transit stop.
Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, between 30th to 43rd Streets and Market Street to Baltimore Avenue.
Escort services also extend west to 50th Street, and north/south from Spring Garden to Woodland Avenue, between 10 a.m. and 3 a.m. via the University’s partnership with the University District Ambassador Program.
