Campus Walk Program

The Campus Walk service is provided by trained student teams who will, on request, accompany students, staff, faculty or visitors to their car, the residence or other campus locations on weeknights. Campus Walk members are employed and trained through the Durham College Work Study program (DCWorks) program and supported by the Women’s Campus Safety Grant from the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. For more information on this program, please contact Peter Trimble at

All members work in pairs and can be identified by their jacket and/or identification.  Campus Security will provide escorts when Campus Walk is unavailable.
