“Why walk alone? Walk with us!”
The Safewalk program is an initiative of the Student Association of George Brown College providing on and off-campus walk accompaniment service to students, staff, and visitors of the George Brown College community.
Safewalk staff also help promote safety awareness and health education. Safewalk is a pro-active safety measure that aims to improve campus life by creating a safe environment for all.
In the fall and winter semesters, with the exception of winter break and other days the college is closed, the service is available Monday to Thursday from 6:15 p.m. to 11 p.m. and on Fridays from 6:15 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Safewalk works 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, and understanding and managing aggressive behaviour.
Staff are also involved in conducting nightly safety audits of the campuses, helping to ensure safer spaces for all.
We are available for walks at all three main campuses (Casa Loma, St. James and Waterfront), stationed by the college’s welcome desks, as well as in the hospitality building. You can also flag us down any time when on patrol in our yellow Safewalk vests to get a walk.
Can’t meet us? Can’t find us? Let us come to you. Phone us at 416.415.5000 Ext. 2020, or dial 2020 from any campus phone after 6:15 p.m. to have a Safewalk team meet you anywhere on campus. You can also book a walk online.
