Traveling on Campus

When you travel on Campus:

  • Travel with a friend, especially at night.
  • Follow suggested travel routes on campus. They are well traveled, well lit at night, located in open and visible areas, and extend from most student residences to academic areas.
  • Stay on the suggested routes and avoid shortcuts.
  • Travel on the clear, lighted areas of the routes.
  • Be cautious in and around buildings.
  • Carry purses, briefcases, and backpacks with a firm grip close to your body.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Never wear headphones. They limit your ability to detect and respond to an emergency situation.
  • After dark, use the Marguerite Shuttle or the SURE escort service at 725-SURE (7873). Students driving SURE golf carts provide escort services to anyone in the Stanford community who wants a safer trip across campus.
  • Know the locations of 24-hour access buildings: Terman Engineering Center, Medical Center, Lucile Packard Childrens’ Hospital, Sweet Hall (second floor computer cluster), Forsythe Hall (first floor), and Meyer Library (24-hour study lab).
  • If you think you are being followed or threatened, press the red button on one of the blue emergency phone towers located on main travel routes across campus.
