24 Hour Police Escort Service

The University of Maryland Police Department provides an escort service for anyone who feels unsafe when walking across campus. The escorts are conducted by the Student Police Auxiliary foot patrol program in which Student Police Aides (SPAs) patrol the campus on foot and on bicycle.

If you would like an escort, please call the UMDPS to request one at:

301 405-3555 (off campus),  x53555 (campus),  or #3333 from cell phone

You may also use a blue light emergency PERT phone to call for an escort.

The police escort service is available to community members at all times. The hours of the Auxiliary Division foot patrol program are Monday-Friday, 6:00 p.m. to midnight, during which times a Police Aide will provide the escort. Police Officers will provide escorts when the Auxiliary Division foot patrol is out of service or if requested and available.
In addition to the foot patrol program, SPAs are involved in a parking garage security program on campus. As a part of this program, SPAs augment the Department of Campus Parking PIT Crew and provide jump starts, unlock cars, and give escorts. The parking garage security program operates seven days a week from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
For more information regarding the services provided by the Student Auxiliary, please contact the SPA coordinator at (301)405-5752.
