Northeastern’s Public Safety Division provides an on-campus personal safety escort service twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Call the Northeastern University Police at (617) 373-2121. Tell them your name, Northeastern ID number, exact location, and destination.

Public Safety also provides an off-campus shuttle escort when you leave campus to return to your off-campus apartment during the hours of darkness. This university-operated shuttle is free and provides drop off service to locations within a one mile radius of campus. The nightly shuttle departs from Snell Library every 30 minutes from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Off-campus escorts are solely to your residence. Exceptions will be made under emergency situations only.
