Free Safety Services

The following safety services are free for all students, faculty and staff:

Emergency Text Alerts Register for emergency text alerts. It’s the safest way to ensure you receive critical university notifications on safety issues and more.

SafeWalk & SafeRide – We’ll help you get home safely. Call 410-704-SAFE (7233) to arrange a free police escort or ride. SafeWalk escorts are available 24/7. SafeRides are available from 2:30 a.m. (when the Gold Shuttle ends) to 7 a.m. You can also hail a SafeRide shuttle whenever you see it. 

SaferMobility App – The SaferMobility app has a mobile-escort feature, a video chat capability that allows you to send the TUPD real-time video of an ongoing crime, and an instant messaging feature that silently connects you with TUPD. Search for “SaferMobility” in the App Store or on Google Play.

Emergency Phones – TU’s campus has 64 blue light emergency phones and 54 additional emergency phones on the exterior of buildings, at entrances to buildings and in campus garage elevator lobbies. Activating the emergency telephone system prompts a call directly to the TUPD.

Property SafetyRegister your property with the TUPD to assist in recovery if it becomes lost, stolen or misplaced. The TUPD will also engrave valuables with your name and phone number for free. Call 410-704-5622 to schedule. 

We encourage the campus community to review our safety videos and tips and practice good crime prevention and response techniques. For more information on campus safety, visit the TUPD website.
