Nighttime Safety Escort Information

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 from Snell Library to return to your off-campus apartment between dusk and dawn. This university-operated shuttle is free and provides drop off service to locations within two miles of the center of the campus.   To use this escort service, students MUST book a ride in advance using the Transloc Rider App OR using the web portal if they have no access to a phone.
