Services provided by Campus Safety

Shuttle Escorts: The service operates 4 PM to 3 AM daily. It is meant to be used for safety purposes and not for routine transportation. Campus Safety provides over 22,500 escorts annually. Unnecessary use of the service can limit its availability to other legitimate users. It is available on campus and within a perimeter of several blocks surrounding campus (116th, Pacific Ave, Tule Lake Rd, Ainsworth AV.). See a map of our perimeter. Certain rules and restrictions apply and can be viewed here. Escorts to known parties and bars are restricted and can result in a loss of escort privileges if abused. The escort vehicles are considered an extension of PLU property and the transportation of alcohol is not allowed. Due to staffing levels, shuttle escorts may not always be available.

This service is not available during the summer. Campus Safety will still provide escorts on campus for persons with mobility issues to assist with getting to class on time.

Walking Escorts: One of our Safety Officers will perform walking escorts on and immediately adjacent to campus 24 hours a day, all year round. Since the Safety Officers have a number of other tasks that they will be involved with, please call ahead to get an estimated time of arrival (ETA) and place your request accordingly.

Vehicle jump starts: If you return to your vehicle and find a dead battery, campus safety will jump start your vehicle.
