SafeWalk provides free walk accompaniment to students, staff, and visitors of the George Brown College community. We walk on-campus and off-campus up to two (2) kilometres. It is an initiative of the Student Association of George Brown College.
We are available for walks at St James (Hospitality Building, 300 Adelaide St. E), Casa Loma (160 Kendal Ave.), Waterfront (51 Dockside Dr.), and the Daniels Waterfront building (3 Lower Jarvis St.) We are stationed by the college’s welcome desks (look for our banner). You can also flag us down any time when on patrol in our yellow SafeWalk vests to get a walk.
The service is available Monday to Friday starting at 6:15 p.m. The service does not operate during the winter and spring breaks, and other days the college is closed.
NOTE: If you are on the Toronto Metropolitan University campus, contact TMU Security (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) at 416-979-5040 (internal phones 55040), or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SafeWalk staff work in pairs to complete walks within a two-kilometre radius from campus with any student, staff or visitor of the college. SafeWalk staff have extensive training in First Aid, CPR, AED, consent, sexual assault awareness, how to respond to a sexual assault disclosure, Naloxone administration, and Understanding and Managing Aggressive Behaviour (UMAB).
SafeWalk staff also promote safety awareness. SafeWalk is a pro-active safety measure that improves campus life by creating a safer environment for all.
Staff also conduct nightly safety audits of the campuses, helping to ensure safer spaces for all.
