Travel Safely

To help ensure your safety as you travel around campus, the neighboring areas, and the Chicago area, keep in mind the following tips:

  • Stay alert
  • Focus on your surroundings
  • Eliminate the use of your cell phone or other personal electronic devices
  • Keep your belongings close to you and never leave your property unattended
  • Never allow a stranger to use your cell phone
  • At night, walk in groups, use the NightRide shuttle service, or ride CTA buses
