Walk-Back, the enhanced walking escort program during reading days and finals, April 27th to May 9th
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.
Spring Semester 2017: Walk-Back is held from Thursday, April 27th to Tuesday, May 9th, 10pm to 3am.
An Allied Universal 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.
The Division of Public Safety provides this service in addition to its traditional Walking Escort Programs: Remember you can call anytime for a walking escort: 215-898-WALK.
Uniformed Allied Universal Public Safety Officers provide walking escorts to all campus locations. Officers are dispatched by radio and will accompany you from one campus location to another, to your parked vehicle, 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 extending between 30th & 50th and Spring Garden Street to Woodland Avenue via the University’s partnership with the University City District Ambassador Program.
