When you travel on Campus:

  • Travel with a friend, especially at night.
  • Follow recommended travel routes considered safest for bicycle and pedestrian traffic. They are well traveled, well lit at night, located in open and visible areas, and they extend from most student residences to academic areas.
  • Stay on the suggested routes and avoid shortcuts.
  • Travel on the clear, lighted areas of the routes.
  • Be cautious in and around buildings.
  • Carry purses, briefcases, and backpacks with a firm grip close to your body.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Never wear headphones. They limit your ability to detect and respond to an emergency situation.
  • After dark, use the Marguerite Shuttle or the SURE escort service at 725-SURE (7873). Students driving SURE golf carts provide escort services to anyone in the Stanford community who wants a safer trip across campus.
  • Know the locations of 24-hour access buildings: Terman Engineering Center, Medical Center, Lucile Packard Childrens’ Hospital, Sweet Hall (second floor computer cluster), Forsythe Hall (first floor), and Meyer Library (24-hour study lab).
  • If you think you are being followed or threatened, press the red button on one of the blue emergency phone towers located on main travel routes across campus.
