Walking escorts are available to all students, faculty, staff, and University guests from one on-campus location to another. Two walkers are dispatched for each walk request and are equipped with a radio for contact with the supervisor or to call Boston University Police, a flashlight, their Terrier Card, and umbrellas, when needed. All staff may be identified by their uniforms – a red jacket from the Student Activities Office. Walking escorts do carry parcels or luggage.
