safety tips while walking on or off campus

Keep in mind the following safety tips while walking on or off campus:

Carry a cell phone.
Walk with a friend whenever possible.
Take advantage of SAFEwalk and SAFEride programs available on campus. Call 262–5000 for detailed information or visit link.
Use public walkways and avoid shortcuts, especially at night.
Make sure someone knows where you are going and when to expect you back.
If you think someone is following you, cross the street. Head for a well-populated and well-lit area at night.
Keep your head up. Do not look down or away. Make brief eye contact with all people you meet.
Be aware of places along your path of travel that could conceal a criminal (shrubbery, buildings recesses, etc). Avoid or keep a distance from these areas whenever possible.
Wear clothing that will allow you maximum mobility if it is necessary to run. Be prepared to drop your valuables (heavy books, packages, etc.), because these can slow you down.
Carry a whistle or personal panic alarm with you.
Residents of University Housing are urged to keep their doors locked, especially when at home or sleeping.
Report any crime or suspicion of a crime immediately. Dial 911 for help.
If you have been the victim of a sexual assault, please contact Madison Police at (608) 266–4275.
Anyone with information about recent sexual assaults or other offenses, please contact Crime Stoppers at (608) 266–6014.
