Safety Escorts

The safety and security of our students, patients, employees, and guests is a priority. On Marquam Hill and the South Waterfront, Public Safety offers safety escorts for members of the OHSU community who may have to travel alone on campus, in isolated areas after dark. If you feel threatened or unsafe walking across campus to your office or vehicle, consider your options before taking off alone.

During evening or early morning hours, our officers may be able to offer you a safety escort to other on-campus locations. This courtesy service is provided to the University community and is based on the availability of on-duty personnel. We encourage alternatives as a first choice, but we will do our best to help if those are not available to you. Call 503 494-7744 and dial zero for information and availability.
