Safety Matters

Safety Matters recognizes that in a community of more than 13,500 people, we need to watch out for each other and be vigilant about one anothers well-being. Coming full circle, Safety Matters relies upon each of us taking action to keep ourselves and our neighbors safe.

Safe Walk Program

The UW Oshkosh Safe Walk Program is a service where Community Service Officers safely escort students on and around campus in the evening or night hours. Here is how it works:

  • Call the UW Oshkosh Police Department at (920) 424-1212 and request a safe walk.
  • You will be requested to provide your name, affiliation with the University, call-back phone number, your current location and the destination of your requested safe walk.
  • Remain in the area provided to the dispatcher.
  • If possible, remain available at the phone number provided to the dispatcher in the event that you need to be recontacted for address clarification or an update as to when the CSO will arrive at your location.
  • Stay safe!


Please Note: In an effort to alleviate fears of requesting an escort while intoxicated, no questions are asked unless the welfare of the requester, the CSOs or the general public is in question.

All information on Safe Walks was borrowed from the Community Service Officer (CSO) Safe Walk Program website.
