If you are on campus between dusk and 1:00 a.m., please note that there is a free Evening Escort program sponsored by the UC Police Department, and operated by the Campus Safety Office (CSO). At least 15 minutes before you have to leave your building, you can call: 310-794-WALK (9255), or 4-WALK from any campus phone. CSO will send a safety officer to escort you to your destination. The CSO will walk anywhere between Wilshire Boulevard to the south and Sunset Boulevard to the north, Veteran to the west and Hilgard to the east. This covers all of UCLA, the dorms, the parking lots, and Westwood Village. So, if you will be walking out at night, call CSO and have someone escort you. And there’s a free evening van service that runs from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on two fixed routes.
