Walk-Back Program for Reading Days and Finals!

The Division of Public Safety, in collaboration with the Undergraduate Assembly and the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly, offers the Public Safety Walk-Back Program during reading days and final exams.

An AlliedBarton Public Safety Officer will be posted at the “Button” on Locust Walk from 10:00pm until 3:00am. Approximately every half hour the officer will enter Van Pelt-Dietrich Library to offer walking escorts to anyone in the building. The officer will then perform the escort and return to repeat the process.

Fall Semester 2016: Walk-Back is held from Tuesday, December 13th to Thursday, December 22nd. 

The Division of Public Safety provides this service in addition to its normal Walking Escort Programs: Remember you can call anytime for a walking escort : 215-898-WALK.  Uniformed AlliedBarton Public Safety Officers provide escorts to all campus locations. Officers are dispatched by radio and will accompany you from one campus location to another, to a Penn Transit Stop or to an on-campus SEPTA regional transit stop.

Walking Escorts are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, between 30th to 43rd Streets and Market Street to Baltimore Avenue.

Escorts are also available from 10:00am until 3:00am between 30th & 50th and Spring Garden Street to Woodland Avenue via the University’s partnership with the University District Ambassador Program.

To request a Walking Escort any time, call 215-898-9255 (898-WALK); ask any Public Safety Officer on patrol or inside a building; or use the blue-light phones located on and off Penn’s campus.
