Campus Walk program

The Campus Walk program enables students, staff, faculty or visitors to have a trained escort accompany them to their car, residence or other campus location on weeknights. Escorts are provided by student teams who are employed and trained through Career Services. All members work in pairs and can be identified by their vests with Campus Walk printed on the back. Campus Security provides escorts at all other times.

This program is supported by the Ontario Work Study Program, the University Works Program and the Women's Campus Safety Grants.

Why Campus Walk?

Campus Walk seeks to ensure a strong sense of security among the individuals studying, visiting and working at Ontario Tech University. Campus Walk offers a proactive approach to keeping the campus a safe place for all students, staff and visitors.
