The UC Hastings Department of Public Safety provides daily van escorts, and the San Francisco Police Department provides “walking” escorts to the UC Hastings community. The van escort service runs from 5:00 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. 7 days a week, the SFPD “walking” escort is offered from 5:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. this service is offered 4 days a week Monday-Thursday. When the library is open (during daylight savings time, escort van hours begin at 6:00 p.m., the SFPD escort begins at 6:30 p.m.) When the buildings are scheduled to close, the last van escort occurs 15 minutes after that time. There are no escort services on days the buildings are closed. The van leaves 200 McAllister Street every thirty minutes as needed (5:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m., etc.).
To add to the safety of our community, the College has a formal agreement (contract) with the San Francisco Police Department to provide a police officer to patrol the streets around the College buildings in the evenings. The police officers also provide “walking” escorts from each campus building to another, the Civic Center Bart/Muni underground station, Muni bus stops in the surrounding area, and to and from nearby parking lots. To request this service, you can contact any UC Hastings Public Safety Officer in person, or dial 415-565-4611, or contact the security officer on duty at the 100 McAllister Tower. This occurs 4 days a week to coincide with the library being open.
