Safe Walk and Safe Ride Program


Safe Walk

The Safe Walk Program was created by utilizing the theory that there is safety in numbers. It is available on both the Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses. Students, staff, and visitors of the University community can request a Safe Walk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Security Services will accompany an individual from one university location to another university location, to their vehicle or to the bus stop on university property.  

Requests for Safewalks can be made by calling 204-474-9312 (Fort Garry Campus)

Safe Ride Bannatyne Campus

University of Manitoba Security Services is pleased to announce that it is expanding its Safe Walk initiative to include a Safe Ride component. Safe Ride is a service provided to members of the University community as a safe and free alternative to walking alone after dark. The Safe Ride program will operate daily (Monday-Friday) until 12:00am. Security Services will pick up a student, and faculty or staff member on campus and drop off that person within our Safe Ride boundaries, listed below. When the Safe Ride program is unavailable, students, faculty and staff can still utilize the services of our Safe Walk program, which operates 24hrs per day 7 days a week, within the boundaries of the Bannatyne Campus.
