Safety Escort Service

The DePaul University Public Safety Department provides a safety escort service for students, staff, and faculty from 6 p.m. - 6 a.m. on the Lincoln Park campus. Call (773) 325-7233 or ext. 57233 from a university house phone to request a safety escort. You will then be advised of the length of the wait, if any, for your escort. Because of the various patrol functions and other duties required of officers, there may sometimes be a short waiting period. ​​
