Accompaniment Services

  • Walksafe is a student-run organization that provides a safe alternative to walking or taking public transportation alone at night. Students and community members are able to request an escort by calling 514-398-2498 or by stopping a Walksafe patrol team on the street. While not on escort, Walksafe patrol teams maintain a visible presence in the McGill community. All patrol teams are easily identified by their red jackets with McGill Walksafe on the back and the two-way radio they use for communication. For more details you may visit their website at: Walksafe
