This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For more information and to request a walking escort:

  • Call Public Safety at 215.895.2222;
  • Use one of the many building and blue-light emergency phones located across campus; or
  • Ask any Public Safety officer on patrol or inside a building.

As a result of a partnership with the University City District, escorts are also provided by University City District Ambassadors from 10 a.m. to 3 a.m. between 30th Street and 42nd Street from Wallace Street to Woodland Avenue and from 42nd Street to 50th Street from Market Street to Woodland Avenue.

Additionally, Drexel University Real Estate and Facilities provides free campus bus service (using your Drexel DragonCard ID to board), a safe and secure way to travel between locations on and off campus.
