Stay Safe at College

For many students, the college campus environment will be the first experience "on their own"—away from parents, familiar environments, and for many even their lifelong friends. Equipped with knowledge and good self-defense strategies, a student can avoid becoming prey to theft and other crimes. A good campus experience means knowing how to stay safe and how to protect possessions, identity, and self.

The Stay Safe at College program from 360° Stay Safe™ delivers all the resources needed to be safe, stay safe, and, if needed, always be prepared for self defense.

If you would like to present this video to a group, or would like an officer present for a discussion after viewing, please contact University Police at 608.342.1584.

Police: Safe Walk

Safe Walk

Safe Walk escorts are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

When available, University Resource Officers provide the Safe Walk service to students and staff.  When a University Resource Officer is unavailable, University Police Officers will provide the escort, if at all possible.  Persons requesting a Safe Walk escort may have to wait for a period of time, if there is no URO on duty and the on-duty officer is busy.

To request a Safe Walk escort, call the University Police at 608.342.1584.  After normal business hours, call the Platteville Police Department at 608.348.2313 or the University Police Department at 608.342.1584 (select option 2 from voicemail prompts) and tell the dispatcher you are requesting a Safe Walk escort.  University Police Personnel (a URO or an Officer) will meet you at your location and walk with you to your destination.  The starting and ending locations of the escort must be on or within 2 blocks of the UW-Platteville campus.
