The YSU Student Security Service, sponsored by the YSU Police Department, provides a free escort to YSU students and employees walking from one campus location to another, or walking to a campus location on the near North Side during the evening hours. The YSU Student Security Staff also help student's and staff with disabilities navigate the campus. The Student Security Staff are carefully selected from among student applicants and are trained by the YSU Police Department in First Aid, CPR, AED and to spot and report potential trouble or danger. They are linked by radio to the YSU Police Communications Center and make regular reports during their rounds.
To request an escort, dial (330) 941-1515 from off campus, or extension 1515 from any campus phone. The escort supervisor will immediately send an escort (usually in less than five minutes). Escorts can also be requested on a standby basis by arranging a schedule with the escort supervisor. Hours are Monday thru Thursday 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. After these hours, call the YSU Police Department Communications Center at (330) 941-3527 and an officer will assist you.
