Walk Back Program is Back for Finals!

Finals are almost here and it’s time to hunker down and study for the big tests! Many of you will be using the Van Pelt Library to prepare and as nocturnal students, will be walking to and from there late at night.

Public Safety’s free Walk Back Program will once again be implemented to provide you with a safe and convenient way to be escorted back to your residence starting December 11th and will continue through December 22nd.

An AlliedBarton Public Safety Officer will be posted at the “Button” on Locust Walk from 10:00pm until 3:30am during this time period.

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.

The Division of Public Safety is providing this service in addition to its normal Walking Escort Programs which are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Uniformed AlliedBarton Public Safety Officers provide escorts to 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.

You may also request a walking escort by doing any of the following:

  • Ask any Public Safety Officer on patrol or inside a building
  • Call 215-898-WALK (9255) or 511 (from campus phone)
  • Use one of the many building and blue-light ephones located on and off Penn’s Campus.
