Summer safety at penn  Index 

Contacting Public Safety:

• Emergencies: Call (215) 573-3333 or dial 511 from any campus phone.

Please program this number into your cell phone’s speed dial as “Penn Public Safety.” Use this number for all medical and emergency-related calls, including the reporting of suspicious behavior, or to reach Penn Police & Public Safety personnel.

• General information: Call (215) 898-7297 or visit www.publicsafety.upenn.edu

Safety and Security Services:

• Walking Escort Service:  (215) 898-WALK (9255). Uniformed Allied Universal Public Safety Officers provide walking escorts to all campus locations. Officers are dispatched by radio and will accompany you from one campus location to another, to your parked vehicle, to a Penn Transit Stop or to an on-campus SEPTA regional transit stop.

Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, between 43rd & 30th Streets and Market Street to Baltimore Avenue. Escorts are also available from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. between 50th & 30th Streets and Spring Garden Street to Woodland Avenue via the University’s partnership with the University City District Ambassador Program.

• How to Request a Walking Escort:

    Ask any Public Safety Officer on patrol or inside a building.

    Call (215) 898-WALK (9255) or 511 (from campus phone).

    Use one of the many building and blue-light phones located on and off Penn’s campus.

• Business Services’ Penn Ride Service: Penn Transit Services: (215) 898-RIDE (7433). Monday-Sunday, 6 p.m.-3 a.m.; limited on-call service, 3-7 a.m. Visit www.upenn.edu/transportation

• UPennAlert: The UPennAlert Emergency Notification System enables fast and efficient dissemination of critical information to members of the University community during a major emergency via text messaging, email, digital displays and the Penn Siren Outdoor System (PennSOS). If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes now to register or update your contact information.

    All information is secure and confidential.

    Students: Access Penn InTouch via Penn Portal at https://portal.apps.upenn.edu/penn_portal/portal.php

    Faculty/Staff: Access the Penn Directories via www.upenn.edu/directories

• Blue Light Phones: If you observe a potential safety hazard, need a walking escort, or require Penn Police assistance, contact the Division of Public Safety from one of more than 300 blue-light phones on campus and in the surrounding community. Just pick up the receiver or press the button.

• Penn Guardian: Penn Guardian is a free app that is available to all Penn community members. It was developed by the University’s safety partner Rave Guardian, a service utilized on college campuses across the country.

    Registering is easy—search “Rave Guardian” in the App Store for iOS devices or Google Play for Android devices. You will be prompted to enter your name, phone number and Penn email address, which provides access to the University’s customized interface.

    Calls from a registered phone will allow Penn Police to determine your cell phone’s GPS location, which can decrease response time. This information will only be available to Penn Police when you call the Penn Emergency Communications Center (PennComm) directly, either through the app or at (215) 573-3333.

    The app also allows users to create a Smart911 profile, in which medical conditions, medications, allergies and disabilities can be included. This information can also be viewed at other Smart911-enabled emergency response centers across the country should you need to call them.

    If a call is made to PennComm, and you are unable to speak—perhaps because of an allergic reaction—a call taker will send a text message to your phone. You can then communicate directly via text.

    The app includes other features, and provides a confidential way to submit a tip to Penn Police—with a photo, if necessary—through a text message.

    For more information, please visit the Penn Guardian website at www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/pennguardian

• (215) 898-HELP line: The HELP Line is a 24-hour-a-day phone number for members of the Penn community who are seeking time-sensitive help in navigating Penn’s resources for health and wellness.

    Any member of the Penn community can utilize this service by calling (215) 898-HELP (4357). Calls will be answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Division of Public Safety professionals trained in mental health referrals by staff from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).

    Students who are dealing with the complex emotional challenges of university life can use the HELP Line to receive information and referrals to the many health and wellness resources at Penn, including CAPS, Student Health Service, Student Intervention Services, Public Safety and others. They may also call on behalf of a friend or acquaintance. Parents who are concerned about their student may also call the HELP Line for assistance.

• Property Registration: Penn students and faculty/staff can register their bicycles, electronic equipment and other valuable property online with the University of Pennsylvania Police Department. Students can also purchase a U-lock through their SFS account.

    Students: Access Campus Express Online via http://campusexpress.upenn.edu

    Faculty/Staff: Access U@Penn via www.upenn.edu/u@penn

• Safety Presentations and Materials: Members of the Division of Public Safety will provide safety information including brochures, videos and presentations upon request. To request materials or arrange for a presentation, please contact our Special Services Department at (215) 898-4481 or submit a form online at www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/contact/presentation-request-form/

• Preventing Theft on Campus: Unattended theft is the number one crime here at Penn. The majority of all theft reported to the Penn Police occurs because items are left unattended or are improperly secured.

    1.   All items should be taken with you at all times.

    2.   U-locks, not cable locks, should be used on bikes.

    3.   You should always lock your doors, even if leaving for only a few minutes.

    4.   Always report suspicious activity by contacting the Division of Public Safety at (215) 573-3333 or 511 from a campus phone.

• Safety Practices: The Division of Public Safety asks that all University community members engage the idea that “Safety and Security is a Shared Responsibility.” Please remember to take your personal property with you at all times, don’t leave doors unlocked and report suspicious behavior.
