Our transportation safety programs help ensure your safety when travelling to, from and around our campuses.
The Safe Walk Program was created using 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, seven days a week.
Security Services will make every effort to arrive at your location as soon as possible. However, a heavy call load, poor weather conditions or another issue can arise that may delay your Safe Walk.
Safe Ride is a service provided to members of the university community as a safe and free alternative to walking alone after dark.
Please be advised that due to current COVID-19 restrictions and out of an abundance of caution, the Safe Ride Program has been temporarily suspended. Safe Walks will continue to be provided. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Safe Ride program operates daily (Monday to Friday) until 12 a.m. Security Services will pick up a student, faculty or staff member on campus and drop them off within our Safe Ride boundaries listed below.
When the Safe Ride program is unavailable, students, faculty and staff can still use the services of our Safe Walk program, which operates 24 hours per day, seven days a week within the boundaries of the Bannatyne Campus.

When you call, Security Services will ask you for the following information:
The Speed Watch Program is a joint operation between the University of Manitoba Security Services department and Manitoba Public Insurance.
Speed Watch is designed to educate drivers on their driving habits and to reiterate the legal driving speeds on campus. The program often runs during the months of September and October during the morning and evening hours.
The Security Services department and Manitoba Public Insurance remind drivers to never exceed the posted speed limit and always set your speed according to conditions.
Drivers are always reminded to be aware of their speed. Unless otherwise posted, the speed limit on all roads on campus is 30km/hr.
Cycling to the university is a great way to save money and the environment. It is important to know your responsibilities as a cyclist for your safety and the safety of those around you.
Bicycles should be parked only in proper university bicycle racks. Parking and storing of bicycles inside any university building, or in any manner which may create a problem related to pedestrian safety, building access or maintenance is prohibited. Bicycles parked in such a fashion are subject to removal by the university and their owners may be subject to a fee or charge at rates established by the University, from time to time. (Parking Regulations - Section 2.25 Bicycles)
Prevention of bicycle theft (though these are not fool-proof methods but may help to deter a thief):
Please report any damage, theft, suspicious activity or criminal activity to Security Services immediately at the non-emergency line 204-474-9312 or the emergency line 555 (#555 on Bell MTS or Roger's Wireless cellular phones).
