Walk Safe Program

This service provides Ryerson's community with a protected escort by security officers or supervisors 24 hours a day to any location on the Ryerson campus, to the Dundas subway or to the following parking lots off campus:

College Park surface lot (corner of Gerrard and Yonge),
East and West lots at McGill and Church Streets,
Sears Lot (Dundas and Mutual Streets),
S/E Corner of Dundas and Bond Street lot,
N/W and S/W lots at Dundas and Church Streets,
Parking Lot under the Ted Rogers School of Business.

These are the boundaries that have been laid out to Security and Emergency Services and officers have to ensure a quick response to on campus emergencies.

To request an escort, call Security and Emergency Services at 979-5040 or by pressing the yellow button on any campus payphone or ext.5040 from any internal phone.

After-hours Building Access

Every Ryerson building has official opening and closing hours which are posted at the beginning of the year. Normal hours are 6 a.m to 10 p.m. Access to your department/school's study area outside of those hours must be granted by the chair/director of the program department/school.

For courses that require you to be on campus outside of these hours, you need to receive permission from your departmental chair/director to use the specific area required. The chair/director must advise security via email ( of your permission to be in the area. Any requirements for keys or passcards to the area must be obtained from your department prior to the date required.

When you are using these areas after hours you must have your access card and photo ID (fees statement for Continuing Education students) with you and show it to security personnel upon request. If you do not have your student ID you can be asked to leave.

Bike Patrol Unit

Established in 1994

Security and Emergency Services Officers assigned to the Bike Patrol Unit undergo special training in bicycle related law, traffic safety, bike patrol tactics, and emergency handling skills.

They are provided with high visibility uniforms, helmets, and mountain bikes equipped for urban patrol work both during the day and at night. (insert pic of uniform)

Created to meet the need for shorter response times to incidents as well as increased patrol efficiency, the Bike Patrol Unit adds a versatile arm to Ryerson Security's Operations.

Safety Tip:
Always have your keys out prior to getting to your car and check the back seat of your car before entering. Do not investigate anything that may appear unusal about your car. Call security and we will check it out for you.

Safety Talks

Security and Emergency Services will provide personal one on one safety talks with any member of the Ryerson community if requested. These talks can be about safety around your home, securing your home, walking, biking, driving to and from the university, or riding the TTC.

We will also talk to your class or department about safety on and around the campus. We will explain what programs are in place for you and your staff/students. We can talk about dealing with robberies, street people, best parking places, types of crimes that occur on campus and why and what can be done to prevent them from happening. What to report to Security and Emergency Services, when and how to get a hold of us or anything else you would like us to discuss.
