Need a safe walk home from campus?

SURE Walk is a collaborative service between Student Government and Parking and Transportation Services (PTS). It operates using student volunteers and PTS staff to provide walking and other transportation for the campus area. Volunteers are gathered from trusted organizations from around campus, such as Orange Jackets and Texas Wranglers to name a few, and include both males and females.

An agency of Student Government, and working through PTS, SURE Walk is in service 7 days a week from 10 p.m. – 2 a.m. during fall, spring, and summer semesters. Upon ordering a walk, two volunteers, one male and one female, will meet you at your current location and walk you to your destination, whether it be on campus or in the greater campus neighborhoods.
