Safe Walk/Safe Ride Services

Don’t want to walk alone to your car, student housing, or another UMB building, especially after dark? A uniformed police officer is just a phone call away, thanks to the Safe Walk/Safe Ride program.

Members of the UMB Police Department offer to accompany UMB students, staff, faculty, and University of Maryland Medical Center personnel by foot or by van. Simply call 6-6882 on a campus telephone or 410-706-6882 (off campus), and a uniformed officer will be sent to your location. Riders are required to have a UM ID or UMMC ID.

Safe Walk/Safe Ride is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
